    The Eiffel Tower completely cleared after a telephone threat for an hour and a half on Sunday. Security forces closed in on the area around 4:00 p.m., and reopened it for tourists around 5:30 p.m. The monument has been closed before due to threats, most recently on March 30 and August 9, and was closed for two hours on June 18 after a man threatened to commit suicide.
