PARIS - Gunmen who attacked the offices of Charlie Hebdo magazine in Paris had reportedly asked for specific people by name before killing them.

The shooting was not a random spray of bullets, CNN reported, quoting a doctor who spoke to wounded survivors he treated.

Dr Gerald Kierzek said it was more of a precision execution, CNN reported.

The gunmen divided the men from the women before opening fire, he reportedly said.
