CBS News took to its official Twitter to explain: 'Robert De Niro was bleeped twice during the Tony's on Sunday night. Garfield dedicated the win to the LGBTQ community, who he said fought and died for the right to love.

A Paris police official told CBS News there was no immediate indication of a link to terrorism, however members of the force's elite serious crime unit, known as the BRI, were on the scene. The suspect reportedly doused two of the hostages with gasoline after the one managed to escape.

Police have cordoned off the area where the hostage situation was taking place on Tuesday, June 12, 2018. But the police source said he had asked to communicate with the Iranian embassy so that they could convey a message to the French government.

Police also did not confirm reports that one of the hostages was injured. "His demands were really vague and incoherent", said an interior ministry official.
