     TOWER

The biggest tourist destination in Paris is shut down today.  The Eiffel Tower is closed to the public as workers protest a recent rise in aggressive pickpockets.  The Paris monument is normally open every day of the year and brings in thousands of visitors daily.  It sometimes closes briefly for bomb threats or strikes.  Ironically, the walkout comes the day after Paris authorities said crimes against tourists have dropped this year thanks to reinforced police presence and video surveillance.
