An armed man has taken a number of people hostage, according to reports, including a pregnant woman.

"All the hostages are safe and sound", Gerard Collomb said in a brief statement.

At least one other man was lightly injured while fighting with the hostage-taker and escaping before police arrived on the scene. "The negotiator had difficulty understanding". There is no indication of terrorist motives.

Police officers waited on a nearby street in central Paris before moving in, arresting the armed suspect and freeing the people held in a ground-floor office.
