Militant threat on Eiffel Tower intercepted

Although I sometimes poke fun at the French, I do believe they are not the right people to piss off. They did kill their own king.

French intelligence services are tracking the authors of a message apparently describing a militant threat against the Eiffel Tower, the daily Le Monde said on Friday.

"I've tracked the message all day sir. It hasn't moved from"

The newspaper said Portuguese air traffic authorities had intercepted a “vague and confused” short wave radio message apparently describing a threat on Thursday, but were not ”panicked” by the message, according to a police source.

Way to monitor the airwaves there guys. Good to know the French Intelligent Agencies are second only to Portuguese air traffic controllers.

The French capital is already at its second highest security alert level and further public security measures would serve little purpose, Le Monde quoted police as saying.

Other than keeping someone from blowing up the Eiffel Tower.

“We’ve been at red for several months. It’s the highest level before scarlet alert which is implemented when there are attacks,” the local police headquarters told the newspaper.

Not a scarlet alert! Perhaps we can have another color in between. How's a Mahogany
alert sound?
