Apparent Video From Deadly Charlie Hebdo Terror Attack Shows Gunfire, Shouts of 'Allahu Akbar

"In the distance, there are at least two persons who appear."

A video emerged Wednesday morning that may show some of the gunshots and violence that raged as assailants reportedly killed 12 people in an attack on Charlie Hebdo, a weekly newspaper in France.

Screams and gunshots can be heard in the video before it shows two individuals using firearms in the distance. It is unclear if these people, who appear to be dressed in black, are police officers or assailants.

A translation of the description accompanying the video reads, "In the images filmed by journalist Martin Boudot … we hear gunshots and voices, one shouting 'Allahu Akbar.' In the distance, there are at least two persons who appear."

Watch the video below:

As TheBlaze previously reported, French President Francois Hollande has called the siege a terror attack. One reporter also claims to have also heard a gunman say, "We are avenging the prophet." 

Charlie Hebdo has come under fire from Muslims in the past for caricatures and satire surrounding the Prophet Muhammad.
