LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - The grisly aftermath of the Paris office massacre by armed terrorists has been captured in photos.

Blood-spattered papers are seen strewn across the wooden floor. Smeared, bloody footprints lined the hallway leading to a room where the shootings occurred during an editorial meeting.

The chilling image from the Charlie Hebdo office shows blood-stained wooden floors, papers strewn across the corridor.

A coat is shown hanging limply from the back of a chair, while a gym bag sat between a desk and another reservoir of blood.

Close to 90,000 French security personnel have been called to duty, with a pair of elite counter-terrorism units on the ground in a heavily wooded area about 44 miles from the capital.

The teams sealed off access to the villages of Corcy, Fleury and Longpont as they hunted for brothers, 32-year-old Cherif Kouachi and 34-year-old Said Kouachi. Both were later killed in a shootout. The third suspect, 18-year-old Hamyd Mourad, turned himself in hours after the attack.

The terrorists claimed they acted on behalf of Al Qaeda in Yemen, and the attack was payback for Charlie Hebdo's mocking caricatures of Islam's Prophet Muhammad.

Train stations, airports, schools and cultural sites remain under extra protection as President Francois Hollande said his nation's greatest concern was another terrorist attack.

Hollande declared a national day of mourning. Silence fell across Paris at noon as the president - joined by Muslim leaders, local residents and tourists - paused to honor the victims.

"France has been struck directly in the heart of its capital, in a place where the spirit of liberty - and thus of resistance - breathed freely," Hollande declared.

In the evening, the lights on the Eiffel Tower went dark in memory of the 12 victims.

"I think all of Europe is crying today. All the free world is crying. All men and women who believe in freedom and reason are crying," Italian Premier Matteo Renzi said.

"We decisively condemn this cynical crime. We reaffirm our readiness to continue active cooperation in combating the threat of terrorism," Russian President Vladimir Putin said.

"This horrific attack was meant to divide. We must not fall into that trap. This is a moment for solidarity around the world," said U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon.
