Over 10,000 evacuated across Moscow over various bomb threats – reports

“Twenty sites are currently being evacuated, and more than 10,000 people have been escorted out, though the specific number is still being confirmed,” an emergency services source told news agency Tass.

“This appears to be a case of telephone terrorism, but we have to check the credibility of these messages,” said the source, who noted that the calls began at the same time, and continued after the evacuations had begun.

Emergency services said that specialist units and officers with sniffer dogs are examining the buildings.

Among the locations affected are three of the capital’s biggest railway stations, more than a dozen shopping centers – including GUM, located next to Red Square – and at least one university, with unconfirmed reports of evacuation at another.

Tass reported that the railway timetable remained unaffected by the police operation.
