#1 Eiffel Tower Evacuated Amid Bomb Alert09-14-2010, 06:00 PM
Police have evacuated France’s Eiffel Tower Tuesday and the surrounding park area after a bomb alert.
Officials said they received a call at about 8:20 p.m. local time saying that there was a bomb at the Eiffel tower
About 2,500 French citizens and foreign tourists gathered in the tower area and Champ de Mars park were asked to stay on the banks of the nearby Seine river as a precaution while sniffer dogs were taken into the park to survey the area.
This was also the same day that the French Senate voted to ban the muslim veil (246-1 in fact). There is a 10 day period to challenge it before it can be signed into law.

Give the French credit for having the balls to ban the Muslim veil. Is supect those "peaceful" people will be causing a lot of trouble in the next 10 days.
