Mixed reports coming in: The Eiffel tower is engulfed in flames, but it is uncertain if it is linked to the terror attack in Nice. Some are saying this is due to terrorism, while others are saying it was caused by fireworks.
A tweet from the Parisian police indicates that the black smoke was caused by a malfunctioning fireworks truck.
UPDATE: Clouds of smoke that were seen in the area of the Eiffel Tower in Paris were not the result of a terror attack, officials say. A truck caught fire at Pont d’Iena – which is across the Seine river behind the Eiffel Tower – but the cause was accidental, local police confirmed. It said the fire has already been extinguished.
