#BreakingNews,#TerrorismReport: :Hostage taking and shooting at mall in southwest France .It's a terroristic attack !

Hostage-taking in southwest France treated as terror incident, say prosecutors.




A gunman shot and wounded a policeman in the French tourist city of Carcassonne and an attacker was holding hostages in nearby Trebes on Friday. Prosecutors say they are treating the hostage-taking as a security incident.

  • Security forces are responding to two separate incidents in southwestern France.

  • A policeman was shot and wounded in the tourist city of Carcassonne.

  • An attacker was holding hostages at a supermarket in Trebes, a 15-minute drive from Carcassonne.

  • At least one person was killed during the hostage-taking, according to French media reports.

  • It was unclear if the two incidents were linked.

  • Prosecutors said they were treating the hostage-taking as a terror incident.

A spokesman for the interior ministry has said he cannot confirm media reports that two people were killed in the hostage situation. Police sources so far have spoken of one person "presumed dead" and another seriously wounded.

French Prime Minister Edouard Philippe says all information suggests that the shooting inside a supermarket in southern France and the earlier shooting of a police officer "seems to be a terrorist act".

Philippe said the hostage situation inside the Super-U supermarket is still ongoing. A police official for the SGP Police-FO union earlier said one person had been shot dead and another seriously wounded inside the store.


Interior Minister spokesman Frederic Delanouvelle has confirmed to AP that there is only one suspect and police are trying to subdue him.



Special police units have been sent to the scene and local authorities have blocked roads and urged residents to stay away. Three helicopters could be seen hovering above the area.
