PARIS, March 20 (Xinhua) -- The building housing the French financial prosecutor office in Paris was briefly evacuated on Monday due to a bomb alert following a hoax bomb warning call, according to local reports.
Demining services rushed to the building to search for explosives after an anonymous call warning a bomb threat was made at 10:12 a.m. (0912 GMT) to the police, French media reported quoting police sources.
The alert was lifted after a 90-minute police search, which found nothing, they added.
Security in France was harassed by a series of attacks recent days with the latest targeting a soldier at Orly airport on Saturday.
The attack in the busy airport came few days after two separate assaults with one targeting the International Monetary Fund office in Paris and the other involving a heavily-armed teen, "fascinated by firearms," and causing four injuries at a high school in south France.
France has already imposed a state of emergency amid deadly assaults claimed by the Islamic State (IS), which have killed 130.
