Tuesday, February 19th ’08. Winter school break has begun and Gare du Nord (site of past disturbances) seems to continue to demand a police presence. Today a number of police cars and police agents were stationed around the front entrance to Gare du Nord as well as two fire trucks. A fire hydrant had been left open and had partially flooded one portion of the pedestrian walkway. Pedestrian traffic in and around the train station continued to move normally. At 5 pm there was no sign of any disturbances in the rail station.
