15 November 2015. Terror in Paris. 15,000 people run in panic from Place de la Republique in Paris. In restaurants people take cover in terror under tables. In minutes the square is empty except for police officers taking cover with guns pointing in all directions. 15 minutes goes by and suddenly the police rise from their cover and call false alarm. A lightbulb is said to have exploded causing panic. Two days before the bloodiest terror attacks in a long time took place in Paris. Suicide bombers tried to get in to Stade de France and several bars and restaurants in Paris 10th and 11th arrondissements were attacked by gunmen and in the concert hall Le Bataclan a massacre took place. Before the carnage was over 129 people were dead and 352 injured.
