Eiffel Tower evacuated following bomb threats

There was a threat made by phone from the suburbs of Paris that led to an emergency evacuation:
Around 1400 visitors to the Eiffel Tower were rushed out of the world-famous monument after an anonymous phone call threatening an attack on Saturday night, police said.

The tower was reopened after around two and a half hours after police searches failed to find any suspicious objects.

The call came from the Paris suburbs and threatened an attack at 9:30 pm (2030 GMT), police said. Police anti-terrorism officers were investigating.

Bomb alerts targeting monuments and public places happen frequently in Paris, but all alerts are "treated very seriously," police said.

Security has been stepped up across France amid concerns about threats to the country over its military campaign against Islamists in its former colony Mali.
Even if the call was a hoax, the authorities did the right thing to clear the area, because thanks to all the Islamists they let into the country in past decades, the danger of terrorism is very real.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
