Elite French police on Monday entered a nursery school where a sword-wielding teenager was holding five or six children.

It was not immediately clear if the 17-year-old hostage taker had surrendered to security forces at the school in the eastern city of Besancon.

The youth armed with two swords earlier burst into the school and took 20 children hostage before later releasing most of them.
