The man, previously identified as Ali Hassan, seriously injured two employees of the Premieres Ligne...

Associated Press reporters at the scene saw police flooding into the neighborhood in eastern Paris, near the Richard Lenoir subway station. Police are “actively hunting” for the perpetrators and have cordoned off the area including the former Charlie Hebdo offices after a suspect package was noticed nearby, according to a police offical.
  • The Medieval Carpentry Techniques Used in Notre Dame Cathedral Rebuild

    CNA Staff, Sep 23, 2020 / 12:00 am MT (CNA).- After fire toppled the iconic spire and destroyed the roof of the Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris, France in April 2009, heated debates ensued about whether the reconstruction should use the church’s original design, or use a more modern design and technique. Some proposed futuristic ideas included a rooftop swimming pool and a greenhouse atop the 850-year-old cathedral. Last year, the French Senate passed a bill mandating that Notre-Dame be rebuilt as it was before the fire, with lumber and medieval carpentry techniques, which were highlighted in a public demonstration...

    A group of Paris, Tennessee residents said they had reason to believe that members of ANTIFA or Black Lives Matter wanted to tear down a statue of a Confederate soldier perched at their local courthouse square. According to the U.S. Census numbers, Paris has slightly more than 10,000 people. Local residents said a woman who grew up there, Rachel Allison, who now resides in Los Angeles, encourages people to remove the statue from a distance of 2,000 miles away. The statue, which the locals refer to as The Sentinel, is 120 years old. The statue symbolically faces the north, almost...

    Thirteen men and a woman went on trial Wednesday over the 2015 attacks against the Charlie Hebdo satirical newspaper and a kosher supermarket in Paris that marked the beginning of a wave of violence by the Islamic State group in Europe. Seventeen people and all three gunmen died during the three days of attacks in January 2015. Later that year, a separate network of French and Belgian fighters for Islamic State struck Paris again, this time killing 130 people in attacks at the Bataclan concert hall, the national stadium, and in bars and restaurants. Those on trial in France’s terrorism...

    Trump says India, China and Russia don't take care of their air Washington -- US President Donald Trump has alleged that India, China and Russia do not take care of their air, while America does, noting that he withdrew from the one-sided, energy-destroying Paris climate accord which would have made it a non-competitive nation . Trump, in his address on energy and the Permian Basin in Midland, Texas on Wednesday, said that by imposing these punishing restrictions -- and beyond restrictions the Washington radical-left, crazy Democrats would also send countless American jobs, factories, industries to China and to other foreign...

    Police arrested a 32-year-old man in the Paris no-go suburbs of Seine-Saint-Denis after a failed attempt to attack party-goers while he was armed with a blade and a semi-automatic rifle. The attempted attack took place at around 7 am on Sunday in the commune of Blanc-Mesnil as several people were leaving a party. The witnesses say the man yelled “Allah hu Akbar!” and came at them with a knife and rifle. But he was quickly hit by a man driving a car, who is said to have acted out of instinct to stop the armed attacker, Le Parisien reports.

    President Emmanuel Macron’s security arrangements were brought into question on Wednesday after he was confronted by protesters calling for his resignation while strolling in a public garden on France’s national holiday. A group of anti-government “yellow vest” demonstrators spotted Macron and started following him, hurling abuse, as he and his wife Brigitte walked with bodyguards in the Tuileries Gardens near the Louvre Museum in Paris on Tuesday. In a video posted on the Gilets Jaunes Infos page on Facebook, what appears to be a few dozen protesters boo and shout «Macron demission!» (Macron resign) as they surround the presidential party,...

    PARIS — Tear gas choked Paris streets as riot police faced off with protesters setting fires Tuesday amid growing global outrage over George Floyd’s death in the United States, racial injustice and heavy-handed police tactics around the world. French protesters took a knee and raised their fists while firefighters struggled to extinguish multiple blazes as a largely peaceful, multiracial demonstration degenerated into scattered tensions. Several thousand people defied a virus-related ban on protests to pay homage to Floyd and Adama Traore, a French black man who died in police custody. Electric scooters and construction barriers went up in flames, and...

    The France Soir newspaper published an article “COVID-19 : Marseille 5 – Paris 1 juste les chiffres” – using a soccer score analogy, making Marseille de clear winner over Paris when it comes to fighting the coronavirus. While the numbers for Paris are clearly bad, those for New York and Montreal are even worse, as we analyze in the second section of the article. COVID mortality is found to be 5 times higher in Paris than in Marseille: 751 deaths per million in Paris, versus 147 deaths per million in Marseille. http://www.francesoir.fr/societe-sante/marseille-5-paris-1-juste-les-chiffres The table compiled by France Soir shows...

    WHEN France begins lifting its coronavirus lockdown next week some of the busiest traffic lanes in Paris will be reserved for cyclists in a bid to limit crowds on public transport.

The mayor had announced last week that the Rue de Rivoli, one of the main thoroughfares through the heart of the capital, would be only for bikes...

    Here we go again. And as you will see from the Western media reports, the French authorities will be blamed. “Islamophobia” and “racism,” right. These Muslim immigrants should be applauding healthcare workers, first responders, etc.; instead, they are tearing up and tearing down society. In Eurabia, Islamic scholar Bat Ye’or explained how decades ago, European governments agreed not to press Muslim immigrants to assimilate. What did they think was going to happen? Tension with the police erupted again on Monday evening in Villeneuve-la-Garenne near Paris, where a motorcycle accident involving the police had provoked the first clashes with residents two...
