French police Monday were hunting armed robbers who escaped after holding up a store in a shopping mall near Paris, prompting special forces to intervene and seal off the area.The three men – one of whom was thought to be an employee of the shop – burst into the Primark store in Villeneuve-la-Garenne early Monday, said a police source who wished to remain anonymous.The area around the Qwartz mall was shut down, all traffic stopped and other stores in the vicinity closed as special forces rushed to the scene.The mall was promptly evacuated but according to police 18 employees had remained inside – some were told to stay put by the gunmen and others had managed to hide on their own.
