Paris supermarket hostages sue TV channel for revealing hiding place

A group of terrified shoppers who took refuge in a supermarket cold store during a terrorist attack in Paris are suing a French television channel for revealing their hiding place.

The six people, who escaped to safety only after French special forces launched an assault on the Hyper Cacher store killing gunman Amédy Coulibaly, have accused BFMTV of putting their lives in danger.

In a live broadcast during the siege, a journalist from the 24-hour news channel announced that a woman had taken refuge in the refrigerated storeroom.

In fact, there were six people, including a three-year-old child and a one-month-old baby, hiding in the room.
