Hostages taken at French bank

Two armed robbers are holding several people hostage at a bank in a southern suburb of Paris. According to early reports, there are six hostages, but local authorities are yet to confirm it.

Police say the hold-up took place at a Credit Lyonnais bank in the suburb of Rungis.

Television networks report that the alert was raised by an employee who managed to escape from the bank.
