Siege in Paris Primark store as gunmen hold 10 people hostage

A group of gunmen have broken into a Primark store in a suburban Paris shopping centre, with 10 people trapped inside.

Special police units are surrounding the shop in the town of Villeneuve-la-Garenne, according to a Paris regional police official.

The police are, at this moment, saying they do not believe it to be a terrorist attack – as an official said the assailants had been trying to rob the store and entered around 5.30am.

The official said it is unclear whether the 10 people trapped inside are being held hostage or are hiding from the gunmen.
