Armed man 'with a bomb' holds three inside a shop

Bennie Garza | 12 June, 2018, 21:13

At least two people are reportedly being held hostage in a building in central Paris, prompting a large police response to the area.

Police have sealed off streets near the scene in the 10th arrondissement and are negotiating with the hostage-taker, Mr Lefebvre said. A Paris police official told CBS News there was no immediate indication of a link to terrorism, however members of the force's elite serious crime unit, known as the BRI, were on the scene.

Officers are trying to determine whether the incident is terror related. They declined to confirm French media reports that the hostage-taker wanted to hand a letter to the Iranian ambassador, or reports that he was holding three people and that one had been injured.

The hostages are being held in the internal courtyard of the building, which contains a mix of offices and residential apartments. An Interior Ministry official said negotiations with the suspect were taking place. The attacker, who appeared to be brandishing a fake weapon, had doused his remaining two hostages in petrol, the source said.
