“Workers discovered the containers as they went to work this morning,” a local source told AFP.

A bomb disposal unit was deployed to the scene and has already completed the disarming operation, the French BFM TV reports.

The media also says that the Paris prosecutor’s office opened an investigation over the alleged attempt to “destroy property by fire,” adding that police do not consider the incident to be an attempted terrorist attack so far.
