Taking of hostages in northern France not linked to Paris attacks: police sources

(From Reuters)

Armed men who took hostages on Tuesday in the northern French town of Roubaix appeared to have no link to the Nov. 13 attacks by Islamist militants in Paris but were probably planning a robbery, police sources said on Tuesday.

“This is apparently not a terrorist attack, it’s apparently a robbery,” one police source said

France is on edge after November 13th’s terrorist attacks in Paris. At least one of those involved in the attacks is still on the run with police in Belgium and France desperately trying to track him down.
