Police patrol Strasbourg while MEPs observe silence for the victims of gun attack

Police and soldiers on Wednesday (December 12) filled streets in Strasbourg's city centre and patrolled highways near the French-German border as a manhunt for a gunman who killed at least two people and injured 13 others at a Christmas market in the eastern city continues.

Meanwhile, lawmakers in the European Parliament in Strasbourg held a minute's silence on Wednesday, paying tribute to the victims of a gun attack in the city.
