The tiny French village of Bugarach has become the target of doomsday survivalists and UFO tourists.
The village gained attention 10 years ago when a local man who is now dead claimed to have seen aliens and to have heard the humming of their spacecraft coming from beneath the nearby mountain. Now it is believed the mountain peak will be home to a shelter for humanity in the event of an apocalypse. So great is the attraction that the local mayor has asked the military to intervene should the influx of visitors become too much to handle.
"Residents of a tiny French village say it is being overwhelmed by outsiders who are intrigued by reports of aliens in the area and believe that the peak looming above may be a sacred mountain that will be a shelter at the end of human civilization."
