Washington DC and The Holy Land>Looks like another attack in Paris at Notre Dame-just a crazy man or terrorist?

OOPS! :-)

Paris (AFP) - A French police officer shot and injured a man who attacked him with a hammer outside Paris's Notre-Dame cathedral on Tuesday, authorities said.

Police sealed off the area in front of the cathedral, where the attacker lay injured on the ground.

The attack comes with France on high alert for more jihadist strikes after a weekend attack in London, where extremists used a van and knives to crush to death and kill seven people, one of them French.

Authorities in Paris asked the public to stay away from Notre-Dame, one of France's biggest tourist attractions situated on the banks of the Seine river in the heart of the capital.

French TV reported scenes of panic during the shooting, with tourists scrambling for cover.

France is under a state of emergency and on its highest possible level of alert following a string of terror attacks that began in 2015, which have killed over 230 people.

In the last fatal attack, a policeman was shot and killed on Paris's prestigious Champs-Elysees avenue on April 20, three days before the first round of the presidential election.

Major attacks in France targeted the Charlie Hebdo satirical magazine in January 2015 and in November that year, gunmen and suicide bombers attacked sites around Paris including the Bataclan concert hall, killing 130 people.

Then in July last year, a radicalised Tunisian man drove a lorry at high speed through a Bastille Day fireworks display on the Nice waterfront, massacring 86 people.

Since then there have been a series of smaller attacks, often targeting security forces.

In other words, the President [Trump] just recommended the one thing that would make it all worse. Totally on brand. https://t.co/t9fSF4pmGE

The three rose windows survived. So that's more good news.

I think people here say a lot of things they aren't actually stupid enough to believe. At least, I hope that's the case.

Fire Marshall Pitt Sludge knows all the options.

Going on memory when the fire chief released his memo was more like. We considered a water drop but feared the structure could collapse or damage other building in close proximity.

No one knew at the time the French firefighters were inside the Cathedral and knew of its present state. Notre Dame is surrounded by water and live news showed it wasnt getting as much as a hose on it at the time. The reason it looked it is French fight fires different than most countries from the inside out. I was watching news reports as firefighters in the US were completely aghast that hours in and was no lines on the fire.

Many were shocked seeing this historic structure going up like a tinderbox. You can find comments all over on why they weren't doing this or that along with advice. Yet the TDS bitches gotta come out and bark. Sad their lives but not unexpected!

As sad as it is to watch a 750 year old building burn at least we have some comic relief watching TDS cause some people to make fools out of themselves. It really is a disorder. Like a dog with worms dragging its butt across the carpet.

Macron's already setting a short repair time for the cathedral. That is not a good, or smart, thing. But, then, it's Macron.

According to the archbishop, the original organ survived the fire.
