No bomb found in Slovak Radio building

An anonymous call that the police received shortly before noon on Sunday, December 19 - claiming a bomb in one of Slovak Radio buildings in Bratislava - turned out to be a false alarm. "Pyrotechnic teams have searched the site and the result was negative," Bratislava Regional Police spokesperson Petra Hrašková told the TASR newswire two hours after the hoax call, adding that the whole Slovak Radio site on Mýtna Street was evacuated, and neighboring streets were blocked off by police for security reasons.
