Moscow Faced 130 Fake Bomb Calls, Evacuated 100,000

Moscow on Friday faced over 130 fake bomb calls that created an evacuation of 100,000 people from shopping malls, schools, railway stations and office buildings.

It was the biggest flurry of fake bomb threats since a wave of bomb hoaxes began in early September. The threats have affected dozens of Russian cities and incurred massive economic damages

Calls were from all four Moscow airports, five railway stations, 15 shopping malls, several hotels, more than 20 schools and many other venues, the state Tass news agency said. No explosives have been found in the anonymous calls.

Flights to and from Moscow weren’t affected, as security agents at the airports checked for explosives without evacuations.
