Gunmen are holding up a store with at least 10 people inside near Paris, the AFP news agency has reported.

Up to three gunmen entered the Primark store in Villeneuve-la-Garenne, northwest of the French capital, at 6.30am local time, sources said.

According to Le Figaro, quoting a police source, a Primark employee sent a text message to a friend at 7am saying he was being held hostage by two armed men.

Special police units are surrounding the clothes store, police said. Shutters at other stores in the precinct remained closed.

Le Parisien newspaper said that up to 18 hostages were being held.

It quoted witnesses who say people were running near the store screaming: "They are armed, they are armed."

"Around 6:30 am (0530 GMT), two or three armed criminals went into the Primark store for what we think was initially an attempt at armed robbery," a police source said.

The source confirmed 10 staff were unaccounted for but could not confirm the reports that they had been taken hostage.

you cant just send a force to deal with criminals these days, it just has to be Special Forces.

Primark seems to be an odd target on a Monday morning, probably not open on Sunday ( it is France).

Isn't Primark cheap enough?

If they make off with all the clothes they can carry, they will have gotten away with about £10 worth of stuff.

They didn't hear the recent story of the idiot who overheated wearing all his clothes on a plane to avoid paying for a bag?
