LONDON (AP) — Intelligence officials have intercepted a credible terror plot against Britain and France, raising security fears at the Eiffel Tower but failing to raise the overall threat level.

The Eiffel Tower was briefly evacuated Tuesday evening after officials received a bomb threat called in from a telephone booth. It was the second such alert at the monument in two weeks.

The warning came as French officials were put on alert for possible terror attacks. British officials, too, have been aware of a possible attack but the terror threat warning has not changed from "severe."

British officials say the threat was uncovered weeks ago and was thought it be in its early stages.

Officials said they believed groups wanted to launch an attack in Britain and then France.
