Eiffel Tower to reopen today


Paris's Eiffel Tower is expected to reopen today, February 12, after heavy snowfall forced its closure for a number of days, BBC reports.

The tower had been closed since last Tuesday.

Officials said it was too dangerous for tourists to visit because of the risk of slipping. Snow turned into ice on platforms and stairs, making it difficult for tourists to move about.
