Eiffel Tower evacuated after climber scales monument

Specialist firefighters were on the scene, the police spokeswoman said.

“The man entered the tower normally and started to climb once he was on the second floor,” a spokeswoman for the tower’s operator told Reuters.

Tourists at the scene said they didn’t know much about the situation except that there was a man climbing the tower.

The tower, one of the world’s most recognizable landmarks, will be closed until further notice, the company added in a statement on its official Twitter handle.
