The Sun (Malaysia) - - NEWS WITHOUT BORDERS -

NEW YORK: New York’s Metropoli­tan Opera was evac­u­ated yes­ter­day after an au­di­ence mem­ber trig­gered a panic by sprin­kling a pow­der that may have been a friend’s ashes, po­lice said. The lead­ing opera com­pany was in the in­ter­mis­sion of a mati­nee of Guil­laume Tell when a per­son ap­proached the orches­tra pit and re­leased an ini­tially mys­te­ri­ous sub­stance, the Met said. No ar­rests have been made yet and no one was in­jured in the in­ci­dent. – AFP
