En politimann ble knivdrept utenfor sitt hjem i en forstad til Paris mandag kveld. Drapsmannen tok kona og det tre år gamle barnet som gissel. Forhandlinger pågår.

Elite police units were in position outside the home in the north-western suburb of Magnanville, the interior ministry spokesman Pierre-Henry Brandet said.

The attacker’s identity and motives were unknown, Mr Brandet said. He did not confirm reports of a hostage situation. Some sources described the attacker as a neighbour of the 42-year-old policeman, who was in plain clothes when he was stabbed nine times in front of his home. The attacker was described a teenager or in his early 20s.

“Negotiations have been opened with the killer and the neighbourhood has been sealed off,» Mr Brandet said.
