An­other bomb threat at CNN

The Citizen (Gauteng) - - WORLD -

New York – CNN’s New York of­fices were evac­u­ated on Thurs­day af­ter a bomb threat, but no ex­plo­sive was found and po­lice later gave the all clear, the net­work said.

The 90-minute drama re­called a sim­i­lar evac­u­a­tion in Oc­to­ber, af­ter an ex­plo­sive de­vice was dis­cov­ered at CNN’s New York head­quar­ters.

Fire alarm bells rang in­side the news­room to sig­nal an evac­u­a­tion shortly af­ter 10.30pm, CNN said on its web­site, as the net­work went to pre-taped pro­gram­ming.

An hour later the net­work was broad­cast­ing from Skype. Around mid­night, po­lice gave the all clear to go back into the build­ing. –
