No bomb found at TA3

NO BOMB has been found at the premises of Slovakia's TA3 television station in Bratislava, police confirmed November 15.

Just one day previously an anonymous caller told the TV station that he was going to kill Economy Minister Pavol Rusko and blow up TA3.

The call came during a live TV discussion show, "V politike" (Inside Politics), on which Rusko was appearing, the TASR news agency wrote.

The building was evacuated and bomb disposal experts were sent in to search for it.

Rusko's security was strengthened following the incident, according to Ján Packa, head of the Office for the Protection of State Officials.

The anonymous caller faces a jail sentence of up to five years.
