The Wound at the Center of Paris

The April fire that melted the roof of Notre Dame Cathedral has wrought big changes in the center of the French capital’s tourist industry.

AP Paris correspondent Thomas Adamson updates us on what’s happening around Notre Dame, what the investigation of the fire looks like, and what has happened to those billion-dollar pledges of support for its restoration.
