Reports: Subway station near Notre Dame evacuated

PARIS, FRANCE (AP) - French media report that a second tourist hub - the Saint-Michel subway station near Notre Dame Cathedral - has been evacuated following a similar bomb threat at the Eiffel Tower.

A Paris police spokesman said he had no information about the reports on the Saint-Michel station, which was the target of a terrorist attack in 1995 that killed eight and injured scores of people.

Across town, about 2,000 people were cleared from the 324-meter (1,063-foot) Eiffel Tower on the banks of the Seine River, and police were checking it for suspicious objects, the spokesman at the police headquarters said.

He declined to give his name, citing department policy.
