Police union official Yves Lefebvre says the suspect in hostage-taking situation in southern France has been shot to death by police.
The update came minutes after French President Emmanuel Macron said all evidence suggested the hostage-taking and shootings were a terrorist attack.
Speaking in Brussels, where he is attending an EU summit, Macron offered his “full support” to everyone involving in the situation.
The president said he won’t give details on the number of victims “at this stage.”
Macron said he would return to Paris in the coming hours and will follow closely the situation.
