A polícia tomou de assalto a agência bancária cerca das 16:45 locais (15:45 em Lisboa) e foram ouvidas três detonações.

Os dois reféns estão sãos e salvos, segundo um porta-voz do banco. Nenhum polícia ficou ferido, segundo fontes policiais.

O homem, que afirmou ser militante da Al-Qaida, entrou na agência bancária às 10:10 locais (09:10 em Lisboa), disparou um tiro e fez quatro reféns, entre os quais o gerente, exigindo negociar com a unidade de elite da polícia francesa, Raid.

A cidade de Toulouse foi palco, em março, de três ataques contra militares e judeus cometidos por Mohamed Merah, um jovem que se disse apoiante da Al-Qaida e acabou por ser morto pelo Raid durante o cerco ao seu apartamento.
