A hostage case is underway in Paris. Two women are being held by a man carrying a knife, a police source said.
According to the first deputy mayor Emmanuel Grégoire, the incident took place “in the Aligre sector”.
“Avoid the area and follow the instructions of the police headquarters,” he wrote on Twitter.
A floor plan is on course in the other sector. Avoid the sector and follow its components @prefpolice. Je me rends sur place.
