Police claims unattended bag found in airport
Nice airport has been evacuated, with armed troops shutting down the entire premises, The Independent reports.
A suspicious package had been left at the airport, leading to the shutdown, as people on the scene said.
The airport has been sealed off just hours after a terrorist killed dozens of people on the promenade, driving through the crowds for more than a mile.
Later police allowed passengers back into the airport, with the situation being described as returning to normal.
French President Francois Hollande announced he would extend the country's state of emergency — due to end on July 26 — by three more months.
The attack in Nice has left 84 dead and 18 in a critical condition.
