Hostage-taking in Roubaix France

Two armed men used Kalashnikov assault rifles and they shot and took a house in Roubaix, French town near Belgium.
A source informed the hostages were a bank director and his family. The suspects had apparently been running away after trying to commit robbery and had not succeed.
Local media said the incident took place at around 19:00 local time, and an area of the town was cordoned off. Gunshots were fired, according to local residents.
