Welfare bomb hoax

A bomb hoax on Thursday morning led to the evacuation of the Welfare Services Department in Kaimakli in the capital, police said.

According to reports a phone call was placed at around 8.40am that there was a bomb inside the department’s offices. The building which also houses a branch of the cooperative bank was then immediately evacuated.

The police bomb squad, assisted by sniffer dogs, searched the building but found nothing. The police believe it may have been a disgruntled member of public.

With the search turning up nothing, police gave the all-clear around an hour later.
