In Paris, a suspect was detained in the attack at the Charlie Hebdo building

One of the alleged attackers who attacked passers-by outside the former Charlie Hebdo magazine building in Paris has been detained, BFMTV reported, citing the police Prefecture.

Earlier, French Prime Minister Jean Castex confirmed four people were injured in the attack at the former Charlie Hebdo magazine office in the Paris district. Two of them are in serious condition.

According to the TV channel, two people fled the scene. One of them was detained near the place de la Bastille.

After the terrorist attack in January 2015, the editorial office of the weekly Charlie Hebdo moved out of the building in the 11th arrondissement.

In Paris, in early September, the trial began in the case of the terrorist attacks at Charlie Hebdo and a kosher supermarket in January 2015, which killed 17 people. On the eve of the trial, the satirical weekly again published cartoons of the prophet Muhammad, which became a prerequisite for the attack on the editorial office in 2015.
