False Alert Prompts Evacuation Near Eiffel Tower

PARIS, Nov 14 (Reuters) - The police cordon briefly put around the Pullman Hotel in Paris' 15th district was a false alert, an interior ministry spokesman told Reuters on Saturday as authorities sought accomplices of the gunmen of Friday's wave of shootings around Paris.

A spokesman for the Accor hotel chain also said it was a false bomb alert.
