Bomb threat at Paris railway station

A railway station in French capital Paris was closed and evacuated Friday following a bomb threat, media reports said.



Paris: A railway station in French capital Paris was closed and evacuated Friday following a bomb threat, media reports said.

The state railway SNCF said the Gare de l'Est rail station was evacuated at 8 a.m. (0700 GMT) but reopened about an hour later, Xinhua reported without offering details.

The scare came as US Secretary of State John Kerry arrived in Paris for a visit in the wake of the terrorist attack on satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo last week.

Meanwhile, French authorities said they Thursday night arrested 12 people suspected of helping a gunman, who killed a policewoman and four hostages at a supermarket in eastern Paris last week.
