    (ANSAmed) - PARIS, AUGUST 13 - Operations to decontaminate the Paris area around Notre Dame Cathedral that has been tested with high levels of lead kicked off on Tuesday. The operation aims to clear the cathedral and the streets surrounding it from toxic dust after hundreds of tons of lead in the landmark's spire and roof melted in the blaze on April 15. The clean-up in particular will concern the yard of Notre-Dame, square Jean XXIII, rue de la Cité, the Pont au Double and the Petit-Pont-Cardinal-Lustiger. The operation, during which part of the area around the cathedral will be shut down, is scheduled to end on August 23. (ANSAmed)
