[Updated at 3:12 p.m.] A CNN cameraman on the scene says the bomb threat at the Eiffel Tower appears to be over.
Police are letting people return to the tower.
[Updated at 2:15 p.m.] The Eiffel Tower was being evacuated Tuesday after a bomb threat made by telephone call from a phone booth in the vicinity of the tower, police told CNN.
It is the second time the landmark has been evacuated in about two weeks.
The 1,063-foot (324-meter) tower was the subject of another bomb threat on September 14 that police later said was bogus.
The threat closed the tower and a nearby metro station. About 2,000 people were evacuated from nearby homes and businesses.
