Paris, Feb 1: Three high schools in Paris were evacuated on Monday following a fresh bomb alert, the French education authorities said. Police searched Condorcet, Henri IV and Louis Le Grand lyceums and escorted all students to safety, Xinhua news agency reported. Last week, two fake bomb alerts forced the evacuation of the same schools.

In the November 2015 edition of Dar al-Islam, an online French-language magazine published by the Islamic State (IS), the terror group called on its followers to kill teachers in the French education system, describing them as “enemies of Allah”. France has been on high terror alert after a series of deadly attacks rocked Paris on November 13, 2015, and killed 130 people. The IS claimed responsibility for the attacks. (IANS)
