Gallery: Notre-Dame cathedral destroyed by fire

By New Statesman

Firefighters brought the blaze that engulfed Notre Dame Cathedral in central Paris under control this morning, though the roof and spire of the medieval cathedral have been destroyed. 

Thousands of Parisians watched in horror as the fire destroyed the cathedral. Onlookers sung hymns as rescue workers attempted to put out the flames. 

Here is a picture gallery showing the event:
