Tyler Durden's picture

Well-known Paris region Place Vendome is currently on lockdown, following a bomb alert after the discovery of a suspicious package.


Local reports note that part of Rue Saint-Honore and Rue de Castiglione is cordoned off.

As The Daily Star reports, protesters demonstrating outside the Ministry of Justice have been evacuated amid reports of a bomb threat.

Police are investigating a suspect backpack left behind at the busy district of Paris, according to reports.

Eyewitness pictures and video from the scene show a police cordon has been put in place with several vehicles blocking roads.

Writing on Twitter, a reporter at the scene said police suggested "Louis Vuitton boutique was mentioned as target".

Obviously they need more diversity.  Because having a safe, secure, happy life where kids could play outside and come home for dinner prior to diversity was just unbearable.  I would rather be back in the days of the cold war when we worried about nuclear annihilation at any moment then deal with this garbage.  We all know that was a better life.

Then shit got worse than duck and cover in my house.

Yeah, shit hitting the cobble stones, and smelling.

Bigly's picture

London does not compare in beauty, architecture, imho.

But, yes, all these places are becoming literal cesspools.

"These things are going to happen in a big city..."


Yeah, ever since the muzlims invaded.

It is still a beautiful city, nothing really has changed since the 80's. I'm there !

It is only seen from the US, that things are changing. Fake news and propaganda.

Timing seems about right.  The US let the ISIS fighters walk away from Raqqa when?

Yes. While a bit of a "be in fear always" remindered report, nonetheless the timing is also a relevant reminder.

And not ironically i refer you again  to the previous article re ISIS (re the BBC,  including the foreign fighters, being simply allowed to walk out of Raqqa to liVe to fight another day or go back home to cause mayhem:


"And astoundingly, even foreign fighters who had long vowed to carry on doing attacks ... According to the BBC report:


 "Abu Basir decided to leave for the safety of Idlib. ... He was part of an *almost exclusively French group within IS, and before he left some of his fellow fighters were given a new mission."


"There are some French brothers from our group who left for France to carry out attacks in what would be called a ‘day of reckoning.’”

I was in Paris for a week last summer. There were tourists in the city center, but it wasn't packed. Easy to get around and get seats at restaurants. A taxi driver confirmed that tourism was down. Driving out of the city to the airport, the city is not so beautiful.

I was there 2 wks before Bataclan. The Eiffel tower was not under lockdown and those hideous barricades then, as an example. But I was well aware that the demographics have massively changed. Darker...standing around in groups. Loitering. Police pulled one off the metro train- unexplained. Not good people!

I do not think I am going back. Ever.

It is common to see groups of soldiers carrying machine guns making their rounds in French cities. A daily occurence now.

dondonsurvelo's picture

It was common back in the 80's when I lived there.


silverer's picture

I don't know why they bother telling anyone these things anymore. It's not news anymore, just a recurring event. Move onto some real events that are worth reporting. After all, everyone in France wanted what they have. How newsworthy can a story like that be? In one word: Boring.

"Paris City Center On Lockdown" !!!!!!!


Fearmongering from across the Atlantic ! Parts of two streets in the center of Paris was closed by police while a suspect backpack was investigated.

Sad to tell ZH that noone was hurt. Better luck next time !!

Mimir's picture

You are lost for reason. Wake up  and stop reading fake news!! Children are still playing outside and come home for dinner.
