Police conducted raids in five towns in the Paris region, iTele reported.

Last week?s violence began with an attack on the Charlie Hebdo magazine.

A kosher supermarket and police were also attacked.

Police carried out raids in the towns of Montrouge, Grigny, Chatenay-Malabry, Epinay-sur-Seine and Fleury-Merogis overnight, iTele reported.

Also on Friday, the Gare de l?Est train station in Paris was evacuated following a bomb threat, reports said.

Meanwhile, German police say they have arrested two men following raids early on Friday.

One of the men was suspected of leading an extremist group of Turkish and Russian nationals, police added.

The group was suspected of ?preparing a serious act of violence against the state in Syria?, police said, but there was ?no indication that the group was preparing attacks inside Germany?.

Two hundred and fifty officers were involved in the raids on 11 properties, the BBC?s Jenny Hill in Berlin reports.

Spain has also launched an inquiry after it was revealed that one of the Paris gunmen, Amedy Coulibaly, had visited Madrid days before the attacks.
