[PARIS] French anti-terrorist forces surrounding a building where they believe two men suspected of attacking the Charlie Hebdo satirical weekly are holed up want to start a dialogue and have not launched an assault, a French interior ministry spokesman said.

"The priority is to establish a dialogue," Pierre-Henry Brandet said in a message tweeted by the interior ministry.

"This can take a long time, hours and sometimes days," he added.
