Four people were injured in a stabbing in Paris on Friday. It happened near the old office of the satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo. Twelve people were killed in an attack on the editorial office in 2015.
French Prime Minister Jean Castex announced this Friday afternoon, after it became clear that a lot of police were present at that location. Two victims are seriously injured.
According to a police source, agents are looking for two suspects. One person is said to have been arrested, but that information has not been officially confirmed. Schools in the area are currently keeping their students indoors.
The police have cordoned off the site of the stabbing. A suspicious package was also found at that location. Research shows that it does not contain explosives.
No details are known about the stabbing. It is not clear whether that has anything to do with Charlie Hebdo. The editorial staff moved to another office after the attack on January 7, 2015.
The trial about the attack on Charlie Hebdo launched in Paris earlier this month. The court also deals with the attack on a Jewish supermarket in the French capital. Seventeen people were killed in the attacks.
