Armed police cleared tourists out of the Eiffel Tower, France’s most iconic building, amid heightened security fears amid a spate of terror attacks.

France is on high alert after a string of militant attacks, including in Paris last year, in Nice on Bastille Day, and most recently last week’s murder of a priest in Normandy.
