About 3,000 police -- riding motorcycles, jogging or traveling on skates -- are on hand to protect the Olympic torch. The relay started Monday at the Eiffel Tower.
Olympic torch extinguished during protests
PARIS, FRANCE Police in jogging gear put the torch out and brought it aboard a bus, apparently to move it away from protesters. The flame was being carried down a road along the Seine River amid demonstrators carrying Tibetan flags when the relay was stopped. It is not immediately clear what police plan next.
