PARIS (AFP) - French police released mugshots of a man and woman wanted over the killing of a policewoman on Thursday, who are now thought to be holed up with hostages in an east Paris kosher grocery.

They were named as Amedy Coulibaly, 32, and Hayat Boumeddiene, 26, and are considered "armed and dangerous". At least two people have been killed in the stand-off at the grocery store, according to official sources.
