PARIS (AA) - Four people were injured Friday in a knife attack near the former headquarters of satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo in Paris.
Two of the victims are in a state of "absolute urgency," according to statements by the police on twitter. Reports indicate that the injuries were possibly made by a machete or an ax.
One suspect has been arrested in the Place de la Bastille square, less than a mile from the Charlie Hebdo building, while two assailants remain on the run.
Police also established a security perimeter around the magazine's former offices after a suspicious package was found in its vicinity. A police search continues in the area of the nearby Boulevard Richard Lenoir.
Law enforcement has warned the public to avoid the area.
