CORRECTED-BBVA offices in Mexico City tower evacuated due to threats

(Corrects in headline and first paragraph that BBVA tower not capital’s tallest)

MEXICO CITY, March 13 (Reuters) - The Mexican headquarters of Spain’s BBVA, located in one of the capital’s tallest skyscrapers, were evacuated on Wednesday around midday due to what the bank said were two anonymous emails threatening violent acts against its corporate offices.

BBVA said in a statement it did not believe the threats were real, but evacuated the tower and another Mexico City office as a precaution.

The bank said its branches continued to operate normally. (Reporting by Mexico City Newsroom; editing by Frank Jack Daniel)
