Four stabbed near former Charlie Hebdo office

Four people were injured when unknown perpetrators attacked passers-by at Friday noon in Paris, near the former editorial offices of the satirical Charlie Hebdo magazine. French Prime Minister Jean Castex announced. An investigation by the French police is in full swing.

Police sources say that two of the victims sustained life-threatening injuries. French police closed the area around the building where officers also found a suspicious package tat contained some substance resembling explosives. Investigators initially reported two suspects, but police are currently looking for only one alleged perpetrator, Reuters says, citing French Prime Minister Jean Castex.
