Five sticks of explosives have been found and made safe in a top Paris department store, French police say.
The Printemps Haussmann store was evacuated and cordoned off, and police directed traffic away from the area.
French news agency AFP received a letter signed by a group calling itself the Afghan Revolutionary Front, warning of "several bombs" placed in the store.
This is no Afghan Revolutionary group. I would rather look at groups from Corsica as there was no detonator with the said explosives.
