Seven people have been detained in connection with an attack outside the former offices of satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo in Paris, officials say.

A man armed with a meat cleaver wounded two people in the attack yesterday (25).

The main suspect, identified as an 18-year-old man of Pakistani origin, was arrested near the scene.

Police said six others were in custody and being questioned.

The attack is being treated as a terrorist incident.
