PARIS, May 29 (AFP) - Several metro stations along Paris's famed Champs-Elysees were closed on Sunday for "security reasons" linked to France's referendum on the EU constitution, police and transport officials said.  

The stations at Concorde, Champs-Elysees Clemenceau, Franklin D. Roosevelt and George V were closed at 6:00 pm and were not to reopen "until further police order", officials said.  

Passengers travelling through those stations were to be allowed to make connections but not to exit the metro system. Trains were not to stop at all at the George V station.
