Bomb thread evacuated Prague's airport

Prague’s International Airport had to be evacuated because of a bomb thread yesterday. The redaction of internet portal iDNES.cz got an email saying that there was a bomb somewhere in the area for travellers. The bomb was supposed to explode between 4 and 6 p.m. The redaction immediately contacted the airport.

At 4 p.m., when the airport got the message, the police closed all terminals (South, North I and II) and started to search for any trace of explosive material. All travellers had to leave the building and wait outside. No planes took off, only landed. Those planes, however, had to wait on the side runways and passengers had to stay on board.

The police together with the alien police did not find any bomb and the airport started to operate normally at about half past six. The last evacuation of the Prague’s airport, because of an anonymous bomb thread, happened last September.
