Paris robbery, Dec. 2, 2016

Editor's note: We are continuing to monitor a situation in Paris' 13th arrondissement, where police have confirmed a response to an armed robbery. The AFP has reported, citing police sources, that there are seven hostages being held inside a travel agency. Witnesses at the scene are tweeting that they have just been asked to move further back from the scene by police, who may be preparing to move in. We're seeking official confirmation on whether it is a hostage-taking and how many people are involved. - Tricia
