Six airports in France were evacuated on Wednesday after emails of “threats of attack”.
The incidents followed other bomb threats in France since Hamas’s October 7 attack on Israel. Friday’s fatal stabbing of a teacher in northern city Arras by a man claiming to be a member of the Islamic State outfit has increased security concerns in France.
The Lille, Lyon, Nantes, Nice, Toulouse and Beauvais airports near Paris were evacuated for proper security check up to clear any doubts that the threats might be real.
The spokesman for France’s DGAC aviation authority confirmed evacuations over bomb warnings at Lille, Lyon, Toulouse and Beauvais.
