France Labels Terrorist Recent Incident in Eiffel Tower

The man, who is aged around 19 and has a history of psychological problems, forced his way past security guards and then shouted, "Allahu Akbar" ("God is Great"), a legal source told AFP.

In June, a 40-year-old Algeria doctorate student who had pledged allegiance to the Islamic State group attacked a policeman with a hammer outside Notre Dame cathedral.Police had initially treated Saturday's Eiffel Tower incident as a criminal case, but anti-terror prosecutors have since taken over the investigation.

According to the company that runs the Eiffel Tower, the man tried to force his way through one of the security checks at the entrance late Saturday night.

The tower reopened on Sunday morning as usual at 09:00 am (0700 GMT).

A source close to the investigation said the suspect, a French national born in Mauritania in 1998, had been in a psychiatric hospital for several months and was granted temporary permission to leave care from August 4 to August 6.

The man, a Frenchman born in 1998 in Mauritania living in the Val-d'Oise (northern suburbs of Paris), was "very quickly mastered and arrested" without causing any injuries, the report said.

The man is now under investigation for terrorism offences.

A security source has reportedly claimed that the suspect wanted to attack a soldier.

France has been on high alert since a series of terrorist attacks in 2015 and 2016 in which more than 230 people died.
