The filming of action movies or police chases has been restricted by authorities in Paris after last month’s attacks which left 20 people dead, including three gunmen.

Fearing that actors could be mistaken for police or army officials, filming has been banned in high-profile public places.

“There’s a problem with these action-type scenes, as the actors in uniform could be targets for terrorists. Also, the actors could pose confusion for the general public – during this highly sensitive period,” Sylvie Barnaud, the police official who grants outside filming permission in Paris, told The Associated Press.

Tensions remain high in the French capital after the Charlie Hebdo magazine attacks in January.
