Moscow: Russian schools received a barrage of anonymous bomb threats on Thursday, with more than 100 schools evacuated in the Siberian city of Krasnoyarsk alone, the Echo of Moscow radio station reported.
In other cities, such as Samara and Stavropol, classes were temporarily suspended after receiving bomb threats via email. Hundreds of schools were affected across the country. According to the report, nothing suspicious was found during inspections. Russia has had to deploy police in response to such threats repeatedly over the years. Schools, courthouses and shopping centres are often targeted.
Authorities do not know what the motive might be in this most recent case. (dpa)
