PARIS - Police gradually began reopening Paris' Gare du Nord train station on Monday night after earlier evacuating the platforms and cordoning off the area because of a security alert, local police authorities said.

A Reuters witness at the scene said there were at least 10 police vans outside the station in central Paris.

"End of verifications. Gradual return to normal," Paris police said in a tweet.

Authorities gave no other details about the nature of the operation.
