The five remaining children and their teacher, held hostage at a pre-school in eastern France, have been released unharmed.
Earlier on Monday, a 17-year-old boy, holding two swords, took 20 children hostage after he burst into a pre-school in the city of Besancon. He later released 14 of them.
Local officials say police have arrested the hostage-taker.
According to French media reports, the teenager suffers from depression.
His motive still remains unclear.
