People took to Twitter to describe the scene at the busy airport where police and soldiers are patrolling with “guns and ballistic vests”.  Ruth Reichstein, head of communications for the Greens/EFA group in the European Parliament, tweeted to warn others about the incident. She said: “Blocked at Charles de Gaulle airport in Paris. 

“Nobody is allowed to open the doors. 

“There is an ‘armed individual’ somewhere in the train tunnels … nice on the way back from Strasbourg.” 

And another passenger said his train has been stopped for 15 minutes while police officers deal with “an armed guy”. 

He said: “My train has been stopped for 15 mins simply because there is a guy being chased by the cops inside a tunnel.” 

One woman tweeted: “Stuck on the train platform of Charles de Gaulle Airport because there is apparently man with a gun in some tunnel around here.

“Police and military walking around purposefully with guns and ballistic vests whereas airport staff just wearing a blazer.” 

She said although passengers and staff members seem calm “people are now allowed to exit the train!”

Another witness suggested the person at the centre of the incident may be mentally ill. 

They said: “So I take the train to go south and when it arrived at Charles de Gaulle a mentally ill person jumps to the tracks and the police are requisitioned.”
