Eiffel Tower evacuated for 2 hours after bomb threat: police
After an inspection, nothing suspicious was found and the Eiffel Tower was able to reopen to visitors.
Its operator SETE said in a statement that after a thorough search nothing was found and the tower was able to reopen at 2:15 pm.
The monument had reopened on June 26 after its longest closure since World War II forced by the coronavirus pandemic.
The Eiffel Tower usually receives about seven million visitors a year, some three-quarters from abroad, although even after reopening numbers are down sharply due to travel restrictions amid the pandemic.
