Le Tour Eiffel...

..., site of a bomb threat:

Police scrambled after three sighted trying to climb Eiffel Tower

Bomb scare: Eiffel Tower closed down for visitors

Eiffel Tower closed to visitors after three ‘terror suspects seen’

Police scrambled after three sighted trying to climb Eiffel Tower

Bomb scare: Eiffel Tower closed down for visitors

France's Eiffel Tower shut amid security alert

Paris: Eiffel Tower closed after intrusion

Reminds me of the time my ex and I went on a big trip to the Middle East. On our way back we had six hour stay in Paris, so we went downtown to see the sites, the Eiffel Tower being one. But it was 6:00 am and nothing was open. Damn Frenchmen./sarc

PS: None of these articles say anything about the perps who did this. I think I can be forgiven for assuming they were Muslim terrorists.

Somebody commented they were probably just these types who leap of buildings and glide, you know, base jumpers.

Would they be stupid enough not to let the authorities know?

It's probably against the rules to base jump from the tower. Hence they would have to sneak in to do it. It's all about the challenge and bragging rights. Or they could be Islamist Idiots looking to destroy a landmark. They like doing that kind of stuff.

Not that long ago Islamists rioted in Paris over some stupid cartoons.

You could be right:

"Eiffel Tower closed for hours after three 'terror suspects with large rucksacks' are spotted - but were they just base jumpers?"
