An evacuation of the Eiffel Tower in Paris was ordered on Friday after a bomb alert.
Hundreds of tourists left the attraction after police sent a bomb disposal unit to inspect the monument after an anonymous phone call triggered the alert around 2 p.m. local time, reported Reuters.
The team found nothing suspicious and the tower opened about two and a half hours later, a police official said.
The police were deeming the alert a hoax, reported Sky News.
Similar full evacuations happen a couple of times each year, while bomb scares happen regularly.
The last evacuation was on March 30, when a bomb scare through another anonymous call forced up to 1,400 people to leave the tower.
