By Lori Hinnant And Elaine Ganley Associated Press

PARIS (AP) — Explosions and gunshots were heard as police forces stormed a kosher grocery in Paris where a gunman was holding at least five people hostage.

A woman was seen leaving the building.

The assault came moments after a similar raid on the building where two brothers suspected in the Charlie Hebdo newspaper massacre were cornered.

The gunman at the market had threatened to kill those inside if the brothers were harmed.
