Eiffel Tower shut down due to terror scare: Reports

DELHI: The Eiffel Tower was closed to all visitors today after a terror scare at the iconic landmark in Paris.

According to media reports, the alarm was raised at approximately 9am after a man ‘with a large ruckpack’ was seen ascending the tower.

The tower has frequently been threatened by terrorist groups, including al-Qaida and Islamic State (ISIS).

Security at the tower has increased significantly since the Charlie Hebdo attacked in January.
