    An armed man with a criminal history, known by authorities, took several people hostage in a post office located in the western part of the French capital, in the periphery. According to preliminary information, the man is carrying a Kalashnikov, a pistol and several grenades, holding at least five hostages in the office.

    On Friday morning, US Secretary of State John Kerry began an official visit in Paris, in solidarity with the French people.
