Eiffel Tower Evacuated After Terror Scare 

The Eiffel Tower was evacuated shortly before closing Saturday night after a knife-wielding man tried to force his way into the Paris landmark.

The incident took place around 11:30 p.m. local time and the suspect was “very quickly overpowered and arrested,” the company that runs the tower said in a statement.

The man reportedly shouted “Allahu akbar” (God is great) as he tried to make his way through the entrance, according to Radio France Internationale.
