PARIS – An explosion has taken place at a kebab shop near a mosque in eastern France, officials said adding there is no report of casualties so far. This comes a day after masked gunmen killed 12 people — including two police — in an assault on a satirical newspaper. France’s top security official left an emergency government meeting to travel to the scene of Thursday’s shooting, which comes amid high tensions.
Earlier today, Paris police said an officer has been shot on the city’s southern edge.
Paris police and a French security official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because the investigation was ongoing, said it was too early to draw any connection between the shootings. (With AFP)
