Thousands of tourists hurried out of tower after hoax telephone
French authorities evacuated some four thousand tourists out of
the Eiffel Tower on Wednesday after getting a hoax phone call
warning that an aircraft was about to crash into it.
The tourists were all hurriedly led out of the structure in
about 40 minutes, and the tower remained closed for some two hours
before it was determined that the call was indeed a hoax.
A police source said that an anonymous caller had said that an
aircraft was about to hit the tower in an attack similar to the
9/11 attack on the WTC towers.
According to Sapa-AFP, the last time the Eiffel Tower was
evacuated was in 2003, and that was due to a small fire.
