The bomb threat at the Eiffel Tower in Paris ceased after about three hours, after a bomb squad searched three floors of the structure, which was then reopened to the public. This was reported by the company that manages the monument (Sete) and a police source. The evacuation of the ‘Dame de fer’ was ordered at 12.15 and the reopening at 15.30. “The bomb squad patrol is a usual procedure in this type of situation, which are rare,” the police source said. The latest bomb scare, triggered by an anonymous call from someone shouting “Allahu akhbar”, dates back to September 2020.
