The three gunmen who massacred journalists at the satire magazine Charlie Hebdo office in Paris have been identified, and the youngest of the three has surrendered to the French police.

Hamyd Mourad, 18, surrendered to the police on Wednesday, while the other two brothers, Said Kouachi and Cherif Kouachi, are said to be "on the loose, armed and dangerous."

"Hamyd Mourad handed himself in to police... on Wednesday at 11 pm (2200 GMT) after seeing his name circulating on social media," a source told AFP.

Cherif Kouchi had also been convicted of terror charges in 2008 and had been sentenced to three years in jail. He, along with six others, was held for sending French youth to join the Al Qaeda in Iraq.

Anti-terror raids have also begun in Reims, where one of the suspects is said to be from.

The three gunmen stormed into the office of Charlie Hebdo magazine on Wednesday, gunning down the editor and nine other cartoonists, and also killed two police officers.
