CNN office in New York evacuated due to Bomb threat hoax

Moscow, Dec 7: A phoned-in bomb threat, which triggered an evacuation of the CNN bureau in the central of New York City, turned out to be false, the local police said.

"All CLEAR at Columbus Circle, pedestrian traffic is now open.Thank you for your cooperation," the New York City Police Department said on Twitter.

On Thursday night, the police issued a bomb alert in the Time Warner Center, evacuating the building to conduct comprehensive sweep-and-search there.The pedestrian and vehicle traffic was closed at Columbus Circle, West 58th Street between 8th and 9th Avenue. (UNI)
