Paris: a fake bomb found on the 7 subway line – The Point

The traffic line 7 of the Paris metro was stopped Sunday at midday because of a false bomb dropped on the platform of the Porte d’Italie management Courneuve station, as reported Le Parisien. A black backpack which a walkie-talkie antenna and exceeded that red son had been reported, and curly perimeter. Once deminers there, they could see that it was a “hoax” more: a real dummy bomb that kind of appearance, but containing no explosives. The traffic resumed in mid-afternoon, and the bag was handed over to the judicial police. It will try to trace the perpetrator.

Plaisantin, person with psychiatric problems or real terrorist? The profiles are varied for this type of malicious acts. On June 21 last, for example, a man wearing a fake explosive belt filled with salt and biscuits had caused a false alarm in a shopping center of Brussels, in a terrorist threat environment still hovering on the Belgian capital three months after the attacks hit her. It turned out that he was mentally ill.

“Disposal Squad”

In a different, but still terrorizing a group of anonymous Internet users assigned on social networks dozens of false bomb threats in high schools. One idea that has spread in the context of the vigilance consecutive attacks in 2015. A Twitter account called “Evacuation Squad” even proposed – for a fee – to launch these alerts on behalf of students wanting to “skip over” , or “a diversion for a crime you commit.”
