A gunman has taken at least two people hostage at a post office in the Paris suburb of Colombes on Friday, according to French media reports.

The gunman claimed to be armed with a Kalashnikov assault rifle and grenades.

A helicopter was seen flying overhead the post office building in Colombes, about 10 km west of the centre of the French capital.

It wasn’t immediately clear whether the hostage taking was related to last week’s terror attacks in Paris.
