An explosive device was reportedly thrown into a kosher supermarket in Paris at around 12:45pm today.

Two hooded men dressed in black allegedly threw the grenade into the Naouri supermarket in Sarcelles, injuring at least one person and causing three others to have a panic attack.

Richard Prasquier, the president of the Council of French Jews, told the Liberation newspaper that one person was “lightly injured”.

The SPCJ, the French equivalent to the Community Security Trust, have attended the site.

The attack occurred in the area known as ‘Little Jerusalem’ given its large Jewish community.

Local police will hold a press conference later this afternoon.
