flame extinguished in Paris

so far it's been quite a day in Paris...we woke up to snow, but it isn't the weather that extinguished the Olympic flame. despite the 3000 policemen, plus armored vehicles and jogging firemen (no joke) the torch relay was interrupted by protests which included banners across the Tour Eiffel. the flame is apparently currently secured in an armoured bus, hidden away by request of the Chinese Olympic officials as pro-Tibetan rights demonstrations escalated.
