Eiffel Tower Evacuated Again Due To Bomb Threat

Posted: Updated:

The Eiffel Tower was evacuated for the second time this month Tuesday evening.

The area was cleared due to a bomb threat, AFP reports. The Eiffel Tower was also evacuated just two weeks ago, but that turned out to be a false alarm.

France has been on high alert for terrorism since last week due to multiple threats.

Security has been tight and tensions high, and yesterday a suspicious package caused diversions and delays for Paris subway stations.

UPDATE: Police say no bomb was found.
