Double hostage crisis in France
PARIS (BBC) – A gunman has seized hostages at a kosher supermarket in Paris as police in northern France have cornered the two Charlie Hebdo massacre suspects.
Armed police flooded the Porte de Vincennes area of eastern Paris after the man reportedly opened fire and took up to five people captive.
He is said to be the gunman who killed a policewoman in the city on Thursday.
In Dammartin-en-Goele, 35km (22 miles) north-east of Paris, the Charlie Hebdo suspects are also holding a hostage.
The Islamist militants are inside a small printing business and have reportedly said they are prepared to die.
