100 people, including visiting schoolchildren, evacuated from Jewish Museum in London following bomb threat
The Jewish Museum in London was evacuated yesterday following a bomb threat. Thankfully the threat was a hoax. One hundred people, including children from two schools, were visiting at the time.
A spokesperson for the museum told the JC that the museum “was evacuated as a precaution following a security alert.” CST and police were called to the scene to implement security procedures.
The incident follows a series of bomb threats against Jewish institutions worldwide, including a bomb threat against Jewish schools in London.
