On Saturday evening, August 5, French police arrested a man who tried with his knife to pass the Eiffel tower. As a result of incident nobody has suffered.
Police evacuated visitors and closed the access to the Eiffel tower 15 minutes before the allotted time.
We will remind, in March of this year, the Paris authorities decided to take measures of security in relation to visitors to the Eiffel tower. To exclude the possibility of collisions of vehicles to pedestrians, with the two sides of the tower are installed bulletproof glass partitions, as with the other two sides of the metal lattice.
Glass partitions will be installed at the tower from the Seine and from the opposite side, and the metal — where there are inputs and outputs.
