One of the hostages is reportedly a pregnant woman, and another is "severely injured", according to a witness.

Police said the incident does not appear to be terrorism-related. The information could not be officially confirmed.

An armed man is believed to have seized at least one hostage in Rue des Petites Ecuries, with armed police and firefighters at the scene. However, his motivation for such an encounter was unknown.

"The man claims to be in possession of a bomb and a handgun", France Bleu said, adding that the hostage-taker demanded to speak with Iranian embassy.

Using anti-explosive robots up and down the street, police surrounded the area to prevent the hostage taker from escaping, CNN reported. Police swept vehicles in the area with a device but found nothing, he said.

Police initially said the hostage scene was unfolding in an office in the building, but soon stopped communicating details to journalists.
