At least two shot dead in Paris hostage-taking

PARIS: At least two people were shot dead Friday during a hostage-taking drama at a Jewish supermarket in eastern Paris, where at least five people were being held, official sources told.

“There are at least two dead, maybe more, but for the moment we don’t know,” one source said. French officials suspect a man responsible for the murder of a policewoman in the street of a southern Paris suburb on Thursday could be the hostage-taker.
And as fears spread in the wake of the attack, the head of Britain´s domestic spy agency MI5 warned that militants were planning other “mass casualty attacks against the West” and that intelligence services may be powerless to stop them.
