North Train Station, Paris
Spain is down, France may be next. From AP:
PARIS — French authorities evacuated stations on a train line that cuts across the French capital on Thursday after the CIA warned of possible attacks, police said.
The CIA warned of an attack on Paris’ RER train network between 8:30 p.m. and 9:30 p.m., said a French intelligence official, who spoke on the condition of anonymity. Subway stations connecting to the line were also closed, the RATP public transport company said.
But no attack materialized in that hour and just after 9:30 p.m., police said a search of stations turned up no evidence of a planned attack and lifted the alert.
Traffic on the RER-A line, which crosses Paris and links the capital to the suburbs, was interrupted at 8:15 p.m., police said. Stations in Paris and the suburbs were evacuated so officers could search.
French authorities have been on high alert since the March 11 bombings on four commuter trains in Madrid, Spain, that killed 191 people and wounded more than 1,800.
