Meanwhile, police have a warehouse in north-east Paris surrounded, where it is thought the two gunmen suspected of carrying out the fatal shootings in the city on Wednesday have taken a hostage.
It also emerged today that authorities believe there is a link between the brothers and the suspected perpetrator of a shooting yesterday in the Parisian suburb of Montrouge in which a female police officer was killed.
