Another bomb threat at CNN
– 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. – AFP
