Four people were injured, two seriously, in a knife attack in Paris Friday near the former offices of French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo, a source close to the investigation told AFP.
At least two of the victims were in a critical condition with life-threatening injuries, the Paris police department said. One suspect has been arrested near the Bastille plaza in eastern Paris but a further suspect is still on the run, according to police.
Police say the weapon used was a machete or axe.
According to a police source cited by France Info, at least one of the two suspects fled in the metro. A security cordon has been erected around the former offices of Charlie Hebdo and bomb disposal experts have been called in following the discovery of a package.
