PARIS – Two French law enforcement officials say a collective panic in several Paris neighbourhoods, including Plaza de Republique, was a false alarm.

One of the officials said the crowd in the plaza apparently panicked after hearing firecrackers.

A French security official said someone had reached out to police in the plaza out of panic, and when officers arrived with weapons drawn, the crowd dispersed in fear.
