On Friday Moscow got a huge threat of Bomb in various locations which created a great chaos in the city. 130 fake bomb calls compelled whole the city administration to evacuate the city. It was the most massive flurry of fake bomb threats since a wave of bomb hoaxes began in early September.
The rumor spread that there bomb in all four Moscow airports, five railway stations, 15 shopping malls, several hotels, more than 20 schools and many other venues. But no explosive has been found in any of these places. However, police got evacuated these places immediately.
Flights to and from Moscow weren’t affected, as security agents at the airports checked for explosives without holding evacuations. The bomb calls continued until the evening when the Luzhniki sports arena and office buildings in the Moscow City district were evacuated including the Moscow city hall legislature and the government’s analytical center.
Alexander Bortnikov, the director of the Federal Security Service (FSB), the main KGB successor, said yesterday the agency had tracked down four people suspected of engineering the wave of hoaxes. Bortnikov said the suspects were Russians living abroad who had accomplices inside the country, but he wouldn’t identify them or describe their motives. He added that the perpetrators were using internet connections to make the calls, making them hard to identify.
