Washington: US Attorney General Eric Holder will attend international terror talks convened by France in Paris on Sunday after a deadly attack on a satirical newspaper, a Justice Department official said on Thursday.

"The meetings will include discussions on addressing terrorist threats, foreign fighters and countering violent extremism," the official told AFP.

The ministerial-level meeting was convened by French Justice Minister Bernard Cazeneuve.
Twelve people were killed in the attack yesterday by heavily armed gunmen who stormed Charlie Hebdo, a satirical weekly in Paris.

A massive manhunt for two brothers identified as suspects in the attack was focusedtoday on a town in northeastern France where a getaway car was abandoned.

The massacre, which claimed the lives of the weekly's editor and some of France's most celebrated cartoonists, drew international condemnation as an attack on the free speech central to western culture.
