Huge Explosion On Metro Train In France

Dozens of people have been evacuated from the Paris Metro after a ‘huge explosion’ took place. Initial reports are that it may have been an electrical fire but the explosion has none the less sparked fears of terrorism in the country that has been terrorized by Islamic terrorists repeatedly over the past few years.

From The Daily Mirror:

As many as eight passengers are believed to have been injured in the explosion, either in the apparent blast or from smoke inhalation.

It is unclear at this time what caused the explosion, but security personnel are believed have sealed off the area.

Dozens of armed police are at the scene around the Place d’Italie as the situation is investigated.

France is on a high state of alert following a series of horrifying terror attacks over the past two years, including the Charlie Hebdo murders in Paris and the Nice lorry massacre.

President Francois Hollande had declared a state of emergency in France and war on terrorism after the attacks shook the country to its core.

The country has been living in fear of a fresh attack by jihadis, but tonight’s explosion is not currently thought to be terror-related.
