Today the access to the Monaco train station, in its upper part, was closed from 10:15 am, after a large backpack was found at the bus stop outside the entrance.
Following a usual procedure in such circumstances, the Public Security immediately sealed off the access to the station, at the Sainte Devote level and installed a security cordon so that the deminers could investigate the bag.
Escalators and elevators were also closed. Traffic was greatly disturbed by the operation.
The intervention ultimately lasted an hour. It ended at 11:10 am. An hour that allowed the miners to discover that the backpack contained clothing.
