A statement Friday by CRIF, the umbrella group of French Jewish communities, said the incident "reawakens in us the fear and pain that we felt on January 9, 2015", when an Islamist holed up with automatic weapons inside the HyperCacher supermarket in Paris and killed four Jews before police broke in and shot him to death.

The IS-linked Aamaq news agency quoted a security official as saying that "a soldier of the Islamic State" carried out the attack in response to calls to target "countries of the coalition".

The shootings come as France remains on high alert following a string of deadly attacks that have killed more than 240 people since 2015.

A gunman burst into a supermarket in southwest France, and took those inside as hostages, said police. "He was known for possession of drugs".

The killer was finally fatally shot by police special forces shortly after 2pm.

"They managed to get some of the people out", said Mr Collomb, but the attacker kept one woman hostage, intending to use her as a human shield.

"The shooting" shooting attack unfolded when Lakdim hijacked a vehicle, killed its driver and attempted to mow down four police officers while opening fire at them.

During the standoff, Lakdim requested the release of Salah Abdeslam, the sole surviving assailant of the November 13, 2015, attacks in Paris that left 130 people dead.

Prior to the attack: Redouane Lakdim, believed to be of Moroccan descent, was flagged to intelligence services and appeared in a database of radicalised militants.

Two others were wounded at the market, an Interior Ministry spokesman said.

The incident is continuing inside a supermarket in the small town of Trebes.

The attacker single-handedly ensured his side made this summer's World Cup in Russian Federation with a hat-trick against Ecuador. "Everywhere in the world they are waiting for Argentina to be champions and for that to happen to me", Messi told La Conrisa TV.

"At one point he saw me and took after me with his knife, I guess because he didn't have any more ammunition", Guibbert told Reuters.

French Interior Minister Gerard Collomb has praised the "heroism" of a French police officer who offered himself up as a hostage swap during an attack in southern France and was seriously injured.

Police are seen at the scene of a hostage situation in a supermarket in Trebes, France. "Thanks for your excellent work", said one.

Another witness, an employee of the supermarket's butcher department identified only by his first name, Jacky, told Europe 1 radio he "heard people shouting and a big 'boom'".

He then shot and wounded a policeman who was jogging with colleagues.

One supermarket worker said some shoppers had escaped from the building after the gunman shouted "God is greatest" in Arabic. "I then evacuated the clients, about 20, who were in my area and we went quietly out of the back", said Francois.

In an interview in December with the local Independent newspaper, Beltrame said he had taken part in an attack simulation in Carcassonne that centred around a mass attack in a supermarket.

Security sources said Lakdim was born in Taza in northern Morocco and held French nationality.

"The forces of order intervened with remarkable speed, both to contain the individual who hid away with his hostages, to help one of the victims who was still alive who he had left in the surrounding area", Macron said.

Lakdim was described by a neighbour as a "pleasant young man" who lived with his parents and sisters in a flat in Carcassonne, 8km west of Trebes, and who took the youngest children to school every day.
