According to the BBC, three men were involved and one may have even been recognised as a Primark employee.

“At around 06:30 (04:30 GMT), two or three armed criminals went into the Primark store for what we think was initially an attempt at armed robbery,” a police source said.

Special forces were deployed to the scene. Shortly after, there were reports that 18 hostages had been freed from the Qwartz Shopping Centre. However, it is unclear how many remain.

The Police have halted all traffic in surrounding areas and all shops nearby have been closed.

They are currently ruling out any terrorist motives.
