A security perimeter was set up around the famous Paris landmark

An estimated 1,400 people were visiting the site when France’s anti-terrorism police made the decision to clear it.

A security perimeter was set up around the world-famous monument and police said a search could take several hours, local media reported.


Before Midnight is an upcoming American romance drama film and the sequel to Before Sunrise (1995) and Before Sunset (2004). Like its predecessors, the film was directed by Richard Linklater. As with the previous film, Linklater shares screenplay credit with the lead actors from the films, Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy. Linklater also shares story credit with the original Before Sunrise screenwriter, Kim Krizan.

Ever since Julie Delpy and Ethan Hawke were spotted in Greece, fans of Richard Linklater’sBefore Sunrise could breath easier knowing that Jesse and Celine’s reunion didn’t end in a Paris flat at the end of the Before Sunset. Now fans who didn’t make it to SXSW or Sundance, where Before Midnight premiered in January, can finally see the couple together again.

This chapter is not about young love or love-lost. The chase is over. Nine years after Paris, they’re together, with the kids, on vacation, in Greece. This is where romance gets real — and really difficult. Eighteen years after meeting on a train, are Jesse and Celine still the same people? “This is how people start breaking up,” says Celine, who gets all the wet-blanket lines that allow fun-loving Jesse to say, “You are the mayor of Crazy Town.”
