Over 1,400 tourists and staff were allowed to return to the Eiffel Tower following an two hour evacuation on Saturday due to a bomb scare.

The Tower was evacuated after authorities received a bomb threat at around 7 p.m. that a bomb was set to go off in a couple of hours.

Police used sniffer dogs to search the premises and concluded that the Parisian landmark was clear and safe to reopen to the public.

This is the latest threat to the Eiffel Tower, which has received at least three similar threats over the last couple of years.
