Man takes two hostage, including pregnant woman, in Paris office

At least two people are reportedly being held hostage in a building in central Paris, prompting a large police response to the area. The French Special Forces have been photographed arriving at the scene.

Police have not confirmed that the hostage-taker is armed.

Anti-terrorist police are surrounding the Mixicom computer store in the French capital's 10th arrondissement, close to the Gare du Nord Eurostar hub.

However, police have said there was no indication that the incident was terrorism-related, according to CNN.

The Evening Standard reports the attack doused the remaining two hostages in petrol. They declined to provide more details.

One hostage has a head injury, Yves Lefebvre, a police union spokesman, said.

Police have cordoned off the area where the hostage situation was taking place on Tuesday, June 12, 2018. He has since told authorities that he "wants to get a message to the Iranian embassy and the French government", a source at the scene said, reports DM. "His demands were really vague and incoherent", said an interior ministry official.
