Second Tourist Hub Evacuated in France Following Bomb Threat

PARIS (AP) - French media report that a second tourist hub - the
Saint-Michel subway station near Notre Dame Cathedral - has been
evacuated following a similar bomb threat at the Eiffel Tower.
A Paris police spokesman said he had no information about the
reports on the Saint-Michel station, which was the target of a
terrorist attack in 1995 that killed eight and injured scores of
people.
Across town, about 2,000 people were cleared from the 324-meter
(1,063-foot) Eiffel Tower on the banks of the Seine River, and
police were checking it for suspicious objects, the spokesman at
the police headquarters said. He declined to give his name, citing
department policy.
