The hostages have now been freed and the suspect arrested, the French interior minister announced.

The Paris Police Prefecture confirmed to CNN that there was "a police intervention" underway at Rue des Petites Ecuries in the 10th arrondissement of the French capital.

One man is said to have been injured after being hit by wrench as the man - who has not been identified - entered the shop during the late afternoon on Tuesday.

The man is "armed and holding at least two people", a source told AFP, adding that "the situation is quite confused" but did not appear to be terrorism-related. The hostages were held in a ground-floor office in a crowded neighbourhood. At this time, police do not now believe the situation is terror-related.

He also scored as a second-half substitute against Croatia a week ago. "You have to trust, you dream", Neymar told reporters. But Coutinho makes Brazil a more efficient team and certainly much more joyful to watch. "Dreaming is not forbidden".

The police could not confirm to AP whether the hostage-taker is actually armed.

Iran's semi-official ISNA news agency reported that a spokesman for Iran's Foreign Ministry, Bahram Ghasemi, said the Iranian Embassy in Paris stood ready to help "considering the importance of people's lives and human aspects of the issue".

The hostage-taker also claimed he had an accomplice outside the building with a bomb, according to Lefebvre. He reportedly struck one man, who managed to escape, but was doused with gasoline.
