PARIS, January 9. /TASS/. French bullet train operator company TGV had to evacuate all the passengers from a Paris-Lyon train on Friday after a customer, a Syrian immigrant told the staff he was a terrorist.
The incident occurred when the train was passing Saone-et-Loire. The man spoke in English to a British couple sitting next to him and told them he was a refugee from Syria and his country was going to attack Britain soon.
The couple reported his words to the train attendants
The TGV train was stopped immediately at the station of Autun. The police arrested the 30-year-old Syrian and evacuated all the passengers from the coaches.
All luggage the travelers had with them on this journey was inspected thoroughly in order to identify explosives in it. But alarm happened to be false.
The passengers continued their trip on a different train and traffic on the line was normalized later.
