Terror probe opened into Eiffel Tower incident

Star Indian boxer offers to trade title for peace with China

The alleged terrorist, of 19 years old, was captured when violating at 23:30 local time on August 5 one of the controls for access to the facility when he shouted of "Allahu Akbar" (Allah is the biggest), and a knife was seized with which he allegedly meant to attack the guards.

The incident at the world-famous tourist site was initially treated as a criminal matter, but was later designated a counter-terrorism case because of the suspect's statements to police and his apparent radicalization, the source said. The tower reopened as usual on Sunday morning.

The man was arrested and is being held for questioning, and an investigation was opened by prosecutors.

Although a French national, the man was born in Mauritania, an African Arab nation, in 1998.

Security source said the man wanted to harm soldiers.

The man was quickly overcome and arrested, and there were no injuries, the company said.

No one was injured and the tower was evacuated at 11:30 p.m., about half an hour before the tower stops admitting visitors.

France has been on high alert since a series of terrorist attacks in 2015 and 2016 that left more than 230 people dead.

When arrested on Saturday night, the man was reportedly wearing the colors of the Paris Saint-Germain soccer team.

The famous French landmark was lit up in blue and red while a screen flashed up images of the striker signed from Barcelona for a world-record £198million.

Since the first wave of terror attacks in January 2015, 239 people have been killed.
