Panicked Mourners Flee Paris Square In A Matter Of Moments

Mourners in Paris have shown solidarity by gathering at Place de la Republique. On Sunday, they fled in a panic, but it's not clear why.

Since Friday's deadly attacks in Paris, mourners have shown solidarity by gathering at Place de la Republique.

Sunday evening, for reasons still unclear, the crowd fled the square in a panic, leaving it empty in a matter of moments.

Police say there was no real threat at the time. 

Reporting from Paris, Newsy's Zach Toombs and Elizabeth Hagedorn say it shows the city is still on edge after the deadliest attacks on its soil since WWII. 

At least 129 people are dead and more than 350 others are wounded in at least six apparently coordinated attacks.
