KYRA PHILLIPS, CNN ANCHOR: Meanwhile, a bit of breaking news in here to CNN. We're told that police have evacuated the Sacre Coeur basilica in Paris after an explosive -- homemade explosive device was found, rather.
We are told they had to evacuate the basilica after they found this. There was no detonator that they -- so far, no detonator. The device, apparently homemade, was put together with gas bottles and flammable liquids.
For those of you who, of course, have been to Paris, this is obviously a landmark area, a famous church or basilica that overlooks Paris and Montmartre. But once again, we are told that police have evacuated the basilica. We will follow this story also and give you more as we get it.
