FM Qureshi expresses deep sadness over devastating fire at Notre-Dame Cathedral in Paris
ISLAMABAD - Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi has expressed deep sadness about the devastating fire at the iconic Notre-Dame Cathedral in Paris.

In a tweet, Foreign Office spokesperson Dr Muhammad Faisal said Notre-Dame Cathedral is a place of worship for Catholics around the world.

He said the Foreign Minister expressed hope that resilient people of France will be able to restore it to its glory soon.

Cennturies-old Notre-Dame Cathedral in Paris went up in flames on Monday in a blaze, which left the Parisian landmark in shambles.

Footages available on social media captured the moments, flames burst through the roof of the cathedral and quickly engulfed the spire, which collapsed during the fire fighting efforts.

A spokesperson for the cathedral said the fire, which comes as French Catholics prepare to celebrate Easter, broke out at around 1650 GMT. Fire trucks could be seen speeding through Paris towards the scene on the Ile de la Cite — an island in the Seine at the heart of Paris.

Firefighters fear it may be impossible to save Notre-Dame Cathedral, said French Interior Ministry official.
