The alert was published on Facebook by a user. The French police thought there was a threat. Therefore, the train station has been partially evacuated leaving thousands of people alarmed. However, the police dogs squad did not find any suspicious package. For an hour, no trains were circulating and subways did not stop at this station. Latest reports emerging from the station suggest that traffic is now regulated.

It is the second alert today in the capital. Indeed, the first occurred this morning at the Molitor Hotel where the German football team were staying. Fake alert, the German team has been rehoused in another hotel. Their captain Bastian Schweinsteiger said on Twitter that “everything is alright”.

More fear than harm…
