Police in Strasbourg have reopened the central train station as of 21:00 (local time) on Thursday, December 27, following reports of a suspicious package. The train station was evacuated at 18:15 on December 27 after authorities indicated they received an anonymous message alerting them to a possible bomb inside the station. Police subsequently evacuated the station and deployed explosive technicians. Officials later indicated the threat was determined to be false.
