More than 20,000 people have been evacuated in Moscow, Russia due to a city wide bomb threat
Authorities received a wave on calls claiming that buildings in popular places are rigged with explosives.
An emergency services source told Tass news agency: “Twenty sites are currently being evacuated, and more than 10,000 people have been escorted out, though the specific number is still being confirmed.
“This appears to be a case of telephone terrorism, but we have to check the credibility of these messages.”
“Local media is reporting that police units with sniffer dogs and explosives specialists are examining the buildings.
The Russian capital’s three largest train stations, three universities, and more than a dozen shopping centres have been evacuated as authorities investigate.
So far, no explosives have been found in any of the locations.”
