A new video that shows the terrorist brothers’ getaway after attacking the Charlie Hebdo newspaper’s offices in Paris emerged on Tuesday.

The amateur footage shows the masked gunmen, who have been identified as Said and Cherif Kouachi, calmly returning to their black vehicle after murdering 12 people on Jan. 7 in the worst terrorist attack on French soil in decades.

“We have avenged the Prophet Muhammad,” one brother shouts while raising his fist in the air.

The brothers, dressed in black, examine each other’s firearms and reload before getting into the vehicle and driving away.

As they drive off, they force a police officer to speed down a narrow street in reverse by opening fire on the police cruiser, which had been blocking their escape route.

The video appears to have been shot from the rooftop or window of a nearby building.

Said and Cherif Kouachi died two days later, on Friday, after a massive manhunt and standoff with police at a printing plant northeast of Paris in the town of Dammartin-en-Goele.

Their accomplice, Amedy Coulibaly, was also killed on Friday at a kosher grocery store in Paris where he had murdered four hostages. Coulibaly’s mother and sisters released a statement Saturday condemning the terrorists' acts.

Charlie Hebdo’s first issue since the terrorist attack, published Tuesday, features the Prophet Muhammad on its cover.
