As many as 97 elementary schools in Belgrade, as well as some high schools, received bomb threats via e-mail this morning, the Ministry of Education announced. After a thorough check by Interior Ministry teams, it was determined that the reports of planted bombs were false in most of these schools.
According to the Education Ministry’s announcement, most students are now back in the class, while in schools where security checks are still underway, students have been sent home.
Police received a report this morning about a bomb planted in the Beogradjanka building, which houses a school. Also, a mail informing Constantine the Great in Niš that a bomb has been planted there too was received this morning, but the police confirmed this alarm to be false. The airport was evacuated this morning before the police’s bomb squads searched for an explosive device but none was found.
In late April, 23 elementary and high schools in Belgrade received a circular e-mail containing bomb threats. All threats turned out to be false.
