Versailles Palace evacuated twice for ‘security reasons’ following week of terrorist threats

The Palace of Versailles evacuated for a second time due to security concerns amid a rise in terrorist threats.

The palace, one of France’s most lucrative tourist attractions, evacuated visitors on Tuesday for “security reasons” – the second incident in four days.

“For security reasons, the Palace of Versailles is evacuating visitors and closing its doors today Tuesday October 17. Thank you for your understanding,” the museum wrote on social media.

 

Last week, the Louvre sounded alarms and shepherded individuals out of the museum after receiving a written threat.

At least 24 people have been charged with antisemitic acts in the country since the Hamas attack on Israel earlier this month.
