Police operation over hostage situation in Paris

At least two people have reportedly been taken hostage in Paris, CNN affiliate BFMTV reported. The French Special Forces have been photographed arriving at the scene.

A pregnant woman is reportedly being held captive along with possibly two other people in Paris, according to Daily Mail.

The area around the incident in the 10th arrondissement of Paris was ringed off by police.

Police said Tuesday they could not confirm whether the man was armed.

Shocking photos show police decked out in body armour with a local reporter warning of "an armed man". Law enforcement officials cordoned off the area. He has since told authorities that he "wants to get a message to the Iranian embassy and the French government", a source at the scene said, reports DM.

One hostage has a head injury, Yves Lefebvre, a police union spokesman, said.

Negotiations with the suspect were taking place, according to an Interior Ministry official who couldn't be identified because the operation was in progress.
