A massive boom heard across Paris on Wednesday morning briefly caused panic as residents reported buildings shaking and windows rattling. Police in the French capital quickly confirmed that the noise was made by a fighter jet breaking the sound barrier, and asked people to stop calling the emergency line, as per media reports. "A Rafale (warplane) based at Saint-Dizier, intervening to assist an airliner which had lost contact, was allowed to break the sound barrier to join the airplane in trouble. It broke the sound barrier east of Paris," Army spokesman Colonel StephaneSpet said in a statement. It was not immediately clear whether the problem with the commercial jet had been resolved. (IANS)
