By: Scott Sayare | New York Times

After a two-day manhunt, the French police arrested a man they believe was responsible for a shooting this week at a newspaper office in Paris and gunfire at a bank headquarters nearby, the authorities announced late Wednesday night.

Officials identified the suspect as Abdelhakim Dekhar, 48, a French-Algerian with dual nationality who served four years in prison for his role as an accomplice in the deaths of three police officers and a taxi driver who were shot by leftist extremists in 1994.
