PARIS (Reuters) - A man took two people hostage at a small business in the center Paris on Tuesday and demanded that he be put in touch with the Iranian embassy to deliver a message to the French government, police sources said.

The zone around the incident in the tenth arrondissement of Paris was ringed off by police. Special units and fire administrations were at the scene.

“Officials will be trying to start a negotiation with the man,” police association official Yves Lefebvre revealed to BFM TV, which reported that the occurrence did not appear to be terrorism-related.

A police source said the hostage-taker at first hit one individual who was able to get away. The attacker, who had all the earmarks of being wielding a fake weapon, had drenched his remaining two hostages in petrol, the source said.

There were no quick, subtle details on the age, appearance or nationality of the hostage taker. Be that as it may, the police source said he had requested to speak with the Iranian embassy so they could pass on a message to the French government.
