Paris' Gare du Nord rail station re-opened on Wednesday after having been temporarily evacuated while police probed a suspicious item of baggage, a Reuters witness said.

Reuters journalist Kevin Coombs, whose Eurostar train to London was delayed by the security alert, said the station re-opened after the earlier evacuation, which had left hundreds of people waiting outside. The Gare du Nord is a busy rail hub serving northern France as well as international services to London and Brussels.
