    Armed men have taken hostages after gun shots were fired in the northern French town of Roubaix, a police source said on Tuesday.

    "An operation is underway after hostages were taken. Gunshots were fired and the neighborhood has been cordoned off," the source told Reuters. "A bank director and his family may have been taken as hostages."



    might as well make a separate thread to see what happens here.

    I bet the bank guard didn't even have a gun to defend himself.

    And why are they all dressed like Muslims (the angry ones with the signs)? Didn't they get Obumble's or Hillary(ous)'s memo?

    I also thought they were supposed to be poor but every single one is carrying an iphone and they are fighting over charging outlets at the camps. Hopefully soon cnn will be able to edit live footage to tell the story they want.

    Do you guys even know the process in which refugees are admitted to the US?
