He was criticized in December after he tweeted congratulations to the Australian Daily Telegraph, which is part of his News Corp empire, for scooping the competition in its coverage of a siege in Sydney.

Two groups of terrorists took hostages in Paris Friday, where they hand standoffs against French security forces. At one location, French police freed a hostage and killed two brothers linked to al-Qaida. The brothers were suspected of killing 12 people at a Paris newspaper Charlie Hebdo on Wednesday.  At a separate location, a kosher supermarket, four hostages died after a gunman took the store. Police eventually rescued the surviving hostages and killed the gunman.
