PARIS, Nov 22, 2015:
A burst of unexplained noises scared some travellers at the Gare du Nord train station in Paris, where citizens were on edge after last week’s attacks that killed 130 people.
However, Stephane Brossard of the Paris police told AP that the Sunday afternoon noises that some interpreted as gunshots were caused by a pigeon that got electrocuted on the train tracks.
In a sign of the nervousness that has swept through Paris since the attacks, witnesses went to social media to describe how passengers ran out of their trains after hearing the noises.
The fate of the pigeon wasn’t immediately known.
