CRACKDOWN

Bomb Threat Closes Paris Train Station

Police evacuated and closed a Paris train station due to a bomb threat Friday, as authorities across the region continue to crack down on terror threats in the wake of last week’s deadly attacks. An unidentified official said the Gare de l’Est train station, serving the city’s eastern area and countries to the east, was closed “as a precaution” and did not give any further details. Authorities have also arrested 10 people in the region in anti-terrorism raids, which targeted suspects connected to a gunman who attacked a Paris supermarket last week and claimed ties to the Islamic State, according to the Paris prosecutor’s office. Elsewhere in Europe, German police arrested two men in Berlin on Friday on suspicion of recruiting fighters for the Islamic State in Syria. Authorities said 250 officers conducted raids on 11 residences Friday morning as a part of a months-long probe into a small extremist group based in Berlin.
