Train Bomb Threats in Russia Leads to Evacuation of 3,000 Passengers

Moscow, Russian authorities evacuated up to 3,000 passengers from three train stations in Moscow after reports of bomb threats.

Russia’s Sputnik quoted a source saying that phone calls warning of bombs at the Kazansky and Leningradsky railway stations prompted evacuations of a thousand of people from each site. Further 750 people were evacuated from the Yaroslavsky station. We are waiting for explosive-sniffing dogs.

The three railway stations are located very close to each other and serve as a key transport hub for thousands of people commuting to work in Moscow every day.
