Paris: The area around the Arc de Triomphe and the Eiffel Tower in central Paris were evacuated on Tuesday due to bomb alerts and bullet bag discovery, police told Reuters. The subway line in the Arc de Triomphe area was also evacuating.
Police said the Champs de Mars park in Paris around the Eiffel Tower had been evacuated briefly after finding a bag with ammunition. Two local French news sites showed pictures of blue bags with different types of ammunition.
France is receiving high warnings about the beheading of teachers earlier this month, angry at an 18-year-old Muslim man using the prophet Muhammad’s comics in civic classes. There have been several false bomb alerts. Most recently, it happened at Lyon train station last week and at the Eiffel Tower a month ago.
