The streets of Paris remain tense in the aftermath of Friday’s terror attack by the Islamic State that killed at least 129 people. The French government has declared a state of emergency and put the capital city on lockdown.
On Sunday, police evacuated a memorial mass at the Notre Dame cathedral following reports of loud bangs that sounded like gunshots. Hundreds of onlookers flooded into the streets in a panic — but the incident turned out to be a false alarm.
Some French Muslims are also on edge over the possibility of a backlash against their community following the attacks. VICE News met with an imam, a hospital chaplain who is currently treating injured attack victims, and several young Muslims who are speaking out after Friday’s tragic events.
