Gunman on the loose in Paris metro

Parisians were on tenterhooks today as a gunman criss-crossed Paris and escaped into the Paris metro. It is thought that there is a link between two incidents in the Paris area today - the first in left-leaning newspaper Libération's newsroom where a photographer's assistant was shot and seriously injured and the second incident where shots were fired outside Société Générale bank in La Défense. This comes after another incident last week at the BFM TV newsroom where a gunman threatened staff.
