‘Eight-month-old baby among hostages’

An eight-month-old baby is among those being held in the Paris grocery, Israel’s Army Radio says.

It adds that increasing numbers of armed French security forces are surrounding the area.

The station’s correspondent at the scene says media have been asked to stop filming there, because the French authorities know that the gunman, Amedy Coulibaly, is watching TV reports from inside and that this is helping him control the situation.
