Three buildings have been evacuated after bomb threats were sent via email to news outlets in Montreal, reports from CBC say the threats targeted Muslim students in the schools.
Three buildings are being evacuated at Concordia University’s downtown campus after a letter threatening to set off bombs targeting Muslim students was emailed to several media outlets today.
The letter, emailed to the CBC as well as several other media outlets, suggests bombs will be set off at the engineering, computer science, and visual arts integrated (EV) and Hall buildings.
“The suspect sent by email that he put some explosive items inside a few places inside the buildings,” said Montreal police Const. Benoit Boisselle.
“Lots of police officers are on site right now. They looked around, they did not find any suspect items,” Boisselle said.
