A major security alert, triggered by a false alarm, has caused panic in central Paris.
There were claims of hostages being taken in Saint-Leu church in Chatelet, according to reports.
A major police operation was launched, involving more than 100 officers.
Cordons were thrown in place and people advised to avoid the area.
"There was a moment of panic," said waitress Saba Nouira, who works nearby.
