University of Minnesota evacuated after bomb threat
CHICAGO (Reuters) - Eight buildings at the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis were evacuated after a bomb threat, the school said.
Classes in the buildings were canceled for the rest of the day and students were asked to return to residence halls and not congregate in the area, the university said in an announcement on its Web site.
The school newspaper, the Minnesota Daily, reported that a bomb threat note was found in one building, Smith Hall, in the early afternoon and that it and other classroom buildings and a library in the vicinity were ordered emptied as a precaution.
Yellow tape roped off sidewalks in the area, the newspaper reported, and students were lounging on the grass, sitting under trees and playing Frisbee until police told them to leave the area.
