Brooklyn's French community finds support after attacks
Brooklyn's French community in Carroll Gardens received an outpouring of support in the wake of the terror attacks that killed 129 people and injured 352.
Jean-Jacques and Leslie Bernat, the owners of Provence en Boite bistro, were watching the France vs. Germany soccer game with customers when they heard explosions go off around the stadium.
They say police officers from the 76th Precinct came by soon after to make sure everyone was OK. Members of the community also came to lend their support. Leslie Bernat says she's touched that so many people have come to their side.
The NYPD has assured residents that there's no immediate threat to New York City, although they say they are patrolling heavily-crowded areas just to be safe.
The mayor is now ordering all flags to be flown at half-staff to honor the victims killed.
