Paris Eiffel Tower evacuated after fresh bomb alert: police
Police evacuated tourists from the Eiffel Tower in Paris on Tuesday after the second bomb alert this month at one of the world's most visited sites.
The latest alert came amid official warnings that France faces a serious threat of imminent terrorist attack and just a day after a major Paris train station was evacuated after a bomb alert that proved to be a false alarm.
Police on September 14 evacuated some 2,000 people from the Eiffel Tower and the park surrounding it following a bomb alert that also turned out to be a false alarm.
