Six French airports evacuated due to bomb threat

The day before, six French airports were evacuated for security reasons. Threats were received in Lille, Bron, Strasbourg-Enzheim, Nice, Toulouse, Nantes and Beauvais. BFMTV reports more details.

Immediately after receiving the threats, air traffic was completely stopped. Passengers from newly arrived planes were dropped off at the end of the runway and were not taken to the terminal. In some cases, people were asked to remain on board the plane.

According to the media, no suspicious items were found during a thorough search. At the moment, air traffic has resumed at all six airports.

Recall that the Palace of Versailles, as well as the Louvre in Paris and the Lyon station, evacuated visitors and staff on Saturday, October 14, after receiving bomb threats. A few days later, the Palace of Versailles was evacuated again for security reasons.

Last Friday, a regime of “emergency anti-terrorism alert” was introduced in France. The authorities announced the decision to increase the threat level on October 13. On this day, a teacher was killed and several people were injured in an attack on Gambetta College in Arras. As part of the investigation, police detained 11 people.
