Hoax call prompts large-scale police response in Paris

A hoax call to Parisian police prompted the mobilisation of at least 60 police officers in the city's 9th arrondissement on November 11.

Footage shows the large police response and presence in Rue de Londres, which is close to Saint-Lazare train station.

It was reported that the caller claimed 30 people had been taken hostage in a nearby building.

France's terror threat has been raised to its highest level in recent weeks in the wake of multiple terror incidents.
