Attackers Shoot French Policeman in Government Office; Manhunt On.
Paris, Dhu-AlQa'dah 1, 1436, Aug 16, 2015, SPA -- French authorities are searching for two assailants who shot a police officer in a government security building outside Paris.
The officer surprised the two attackers during his rounds early Sunday, and one of them grabbed his gun and shot him, AP quoted Interior Ministry Spokesman Pierre-Henry Brandet as saying.
The officer was lightly wounded in the abdomen but his life is not in danger, Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve said in a statement.
Special security forces surrounded and searched the building in the suburb of Pantin for the two suspects. They found the officer's discarded gun, but the suspects are still at large, Cazeneuve said.
