Firing at French newspaper office
Paris, Nov 18: An armed man opened fire at the headquarters of French newspaper Liberation in Paris Monday around 10.15 a.m., injuring one person before running away, local media reported Monday.

The 27-year-old photographer was shot in the chest and is in critical condition, Xinhua reported citing French newspaper Le Figaro's website.

The entrance to the building was soon blocked.

Last Friday, a man armed with what appeared to be a gun broke into the headquarters of French television BFMTV in Paris, threatening journalists before escaping.

It is not instantly clear whether the two incidents were linked.
