Telephone calls warning of imminent bombings trigger evacuation of stations, airports, universities, hospitals and hotels
More than 100,000 people were evacuated from dozens of locations in Moscow – including a luxury shopping centre near Red Square – after a wave of hoax bomb threats hit the city, Russian media reported on Thursday.
Telephone calls warning of imminent bombings also triggered the evacuation of railway stations, airports, universities, hospitals and hotels, plunging parts of the Russian capital into chaos, the Interfax news agency said. All of them proved to be false.
