The man reportedly asked to speak to the Iranian embassy to deliver a message to the French government, Reuters reports.

Police say a man is holding two people hostage in an office in central Paris.

The hostage-taker also claimed he had an accomplice outside the building with a bomb, according to Lefebvre.

The incident is not believed to be terror related.

Videos and images circulating on social media show several police vehicles as well as heavily armed officers at the scene.

At least one man was lightly injured while fighting with the hostage-taker and escaping before the BRI officers arrived on the scene, a police source said.

The Evening Standard reports the attack doused the remaining two hostages in petrol.

Police said Tuesday they could not confirm whether the man was armed. The area was evacuated and the street was cordoned off.

Negotiations with the suspect were taking place, according to an Interior Ministry official who couldn't be identified because the operation was in progress.
