Charlie Hebdo hunt: France faces double hostage crisis

A gunman has seized hostages at a kosher supermarket in Paris, while police have cornered the two Charlie Hebdo massacre suspects further north.

A police officer told the BBC that two people were killed after a gunman believed to be the killer of a policewoman in Montrouge entered the supermarket near Porte de Vincennes.

In Dammartin-en-Goele, 35km (22 miles) north-east of Paris, the Charlie Hebdo suspects are also holding a hostage.

Richard Lister reports.
