REIMS - A train headed to Paris from Frankfurt was stopped and evacuated in eastern France Thursday after a false bomb warning onboard the train.

The 250 passengers were transferred to another train and arrived in Paris with a delay, the French railroad organization SNCF said.

The train, which left Frankfurt at 10:43 a.m., was stopped and searched at the station in Epernay, but nothing was found.

The incident caused delays in other train connections between Germany and France, but traffic had normalized by evening.
