Bomb threats in Budapest
Thursday, July 7th, 2005
My colleague Peter IMs from Budapest that the authorities have cleared the city’s three biggest shopping malls — Mammut, Westend, Árkád — as a result of a bomb threat.
Apparently the threat was phoned in at 9.20 AM (that’s 40 minutes before the first London explosion.)
Folks are apparently disturbed that the public was only told of the threat at 2PM. The bombs were threatened to blow at 4PM, which was 10AM EST and has now passed.
For those of you who speak Hungarian, more news
