A bomb threat at the Arc de Triomphe in Paris prompted French authorities to evacuate the surrounding area and establish a security perimeter in the center of the city.
The French press points out that the police arrived at the threat site at 15 pm (14 pm in mainland Portugal) and that they established the perimeter that includes the Champs-Élysées and the Charles-de-Gaulle Étoile metro station.
Although little is known about this threat, the authorities will have found a suspicious package within the established perimeter. On the social network Twitter, pedestrians in space show the police apparatus that is established.
Traffic, buses and the metro were interrupted in the area, in order to avoid damage if an explosive is confirmed in the area. All persons present at the site, and within the defined perimeter, were removed for security.
Last September, the Eiffel Tower was also evacuated due to a bomb threat. At the time, on September 23, the police were informed, via an anonymous phone call, that a bomb would be placed in the vicinity of the tourist building.
