'Hostage situation' in Paris - man with 'BOMB and handgun' surrounded by armed police

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.

The man also claims to have an accomplice outside the building.

A police source said the hostage-taker initially hit one person who was able to escape.

Streets in the area have been sealed off by police cordons.

"Officials will be trying to start a negotiation with the man", police union official Yves Lefebvre told BFM TV, which reported that the incident did not appear to be terrorism-related.

Authorities provided no details of the raid by specially trained intervention police officers four hours after the hostage-taking began at about 4 p.m.


Gerard Collomb tweeted the news ending Tuesday's drama in a ground-floor office in a crowded neighborhood of the French capital.

The male suspect reportedly asked to speak with the ambassador of Iran, Lefebvre said.

The police could not confirm to AP whether the hostage-taker is actually armed.

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

The Evening Standard reports the attack doused the remaining two hostages in petrol.
