AT VIENNA'S main bus station, Slovak citizen Michal C. barricaded himself inside a bus and claimed to have a bomb, the daily SME reported.
After one-and-a-half hours of negotiations, he surrendered to the police, who searched the bus but found no bomb.
The man, who did not take any hostages and had no demands, was psychologically unstable. He told the police that he feels unsafe in Slovakia.
Under the Austrian Criminal Code, the hoax-bomber may be sentenced to a prison term of up to three years.
