The Eiffel Tower in Paris has been evacuated after a bomb threat from a man shouting “Allahu Akbar”.
A security perimeter was established around the famous landmark after authorities received a bomb threat via an anonymous phone call.
This was followed by reports of a man near the tower threatening to “blow up everything” while shouting “Allahu Akbar,” a common refrain of Islamic terrorists, a police source told Sputnik.
Social media users posted image of armed forces on the scene.
