• Man carrying knife arrested at Eiffel Tower


    PARIS: A man carrying a knife was arrested as he tried to force his way into the Eiffel Tower, the company that runs the Paris landmark said Sunday. The man, who was apparently alone, was “very quickly overpowered and arrested” and nobody was hurt, the statement added. The incident happened at 11:30 p.m. (2130 GMT) Saturday night, about half an hour before the Tower normally stops admitting visitors. After the arrest, police at the site checked the venue and called for it to be evacuated at around 00:30, 15 minutes before the Eiffel Tower normally closes, the statement added.
