ARMED police have saved 18 hostages held up by gunmen in a Paris Primark store, while the suspects are now on the run.
Anti-terrorist officers entered the store in the Qwartz shopping centre in Villenueve-la-Garenne in northern Paris after armed men had attempted to rob the store at around 6.30am this morning (July 13). A little later, at 7am, an employee sent a friend a text message saying that employees were being held hostage by two gunmen.
The area around the shopping centre is now closed as police try to secure the area. The shopping centre is located in the northern suburbs of Paris next to the Seine River.
