Gare de l’Est closed in Paris following bomb threat

Gare de l’Est in Paris has been evacuated following an alleged bomb threat.

The closure of the Parisian station follows the arrest of terrorism suspects overnight during a series of raids at properties across France.

A bomb disposal unit is at the scene, investigating suspected abandoned luggage.

Individuals in Paris, Le Havre and Toulouse were targeted overnight over links to terrorist attacks in the capital last week.
