This morning we arrived in Paris, to begin our report on last night’s heartbreaking fire at Notre Dame Cathedral.
The cathedral, which is over 850 years old, is important not just to Roman Catholics, but to France and the rest of Western civilization. More than just a place of worship, it is also a veritable museum of priceless artwork and historic artifacts. No wonder people around the world were stunned by yesterday’s blaze.
Over the next few days, we will talk to ordinary people to ask them their thoughts on this tragedy, and also try to get answers to urgent questions about how the fire started, the extent of the damage and plans to rebuild this treasured monument.
