France’s anti-terrorism prosecutor says a shooting and hostage-taking attack is underway at a kosher market on the eastern edge of Paris. A police official says there are multiple hostages and wounded at the scene.
The French president has ordered the country’s top security official to the scene, an official in the presidency told The Associated Press. The police official declined to be named when discussing the unfolding situation.
The events near Paris are happening as two suspects in France’s deadliest terror attack in decades are cornered near Charles de Gaulle airport.
