At least four people were stabbed near the former headquarters of Charlie Hebdo magazine in Paris

Police were initially concerned that two men carried out the attack, but now they believe it is only one, who has now been arrested

Two of the victims are « in a very bad condition », said an investigating source, following the attacks on Friday afternoon

He said two people were initially seen fleeing and a suspicious device was also found

It is not known what motivated the attack or if it had any connection with Charlie Hebdo, which moved its offices after being attacked by Islamic extremists in 2015

At least four people were stabbed near the former headquarters of Charlie Hebdo magazine in Paris

Two of the victims are « in a very bad condition », said an investigating source, following the attacks on Friday afternoon

Police said there was ‘extreme concern’ today that those responsible for the stabbing would strike again

Local schools in the 3rd, 4th and 11th arrondissements have been closed and people are urged to stay in their offices and at home

Charlie Hebdo now publishes from a secret address in Paris, and many staff members have bodyguards

This comes as a trial is taking place in the French capital affected by the January 2015 attacks that shocked the world after the deaths of 12 people

Their main targets were the staff of the satirical magazine which had published a series of cartoons mocking the Prophet Muhammad

The main terrorists – who were all known to the French security services – were all shot dead by the police themselves, but 14 defendants are currently on trial in life imprisonment for «  complicity in terrorism  »

Witnesses saw two assailants who are now on the run and police are chasing them

Friday’s attack took place near the former Charlie Hebdo offices, which were attacked by Parisian brothers Said and Cherif Kouachi in 2015

Critics said the publication deliberately used profanity to stir up hatred against Muslims around the world

The deeply inflammatory images originally led to riots in the Muslim world when they were first published in the Danish daily Jyllands-Posten on September 30, 2005

Charlie Hebdo then published them in full in 2006, leading its writers and designers to regularly receive death threats

Police said there was ‘extreme concern’ today that those responsible for the stabbing would strike again

This led to the atrocities of 2015, when the Kouachis broke into their offices and opened fire

Despite this, the latest Charlie Hebdo carries the cartoons on its front page, under the title « All that for that »

The landmark trial saw defendants face a variety of charges, including obtaining weapons and providing logistical support to killers

Three of the defendants are on trial in absentia as they are believed to have gone to fight for the Islamic State in Syria

The Kouachi brothers died in a shootout with police in a printing press northwest of Paris two days after the Charlie Hebdo attack

On January 8, 2015, Amédy Coulibaly shot dead a policeman, Clarissa Jean-Philippe, in the Parisian suburb of Montrouge

The next day, he took hostages at the kosher Hyper Cacher supermarket in Vincennes, executing store employee Yohan Cohen and customers Philippe Braham, François-Michel Saada and Yoav Hattab before being killed in a raid police
