Bomb Scare at English School, Nicosia

The English School in Nicosia was evacuated after a bomb scare, said the Headmaster Graham Gamble.

Few details are available at this point, just that the school received a telephone call saying that a bomb had been placed somewhere on the premises.

"We immediately evacuated the premises following the school evacuation procedure and called the police," said Gamble.

While the police searched the premises, the students were held in a safe location away from the school buildings

"After about one hour we were given the all-clear and the police assured us that it was safe for the students and employees to return to their lessons," said Gamble.

The normal school day resumed and students were taught until the end of the school day, he said.

The school management are now helping the police with their ongoing investigation, and so far, no one has claimed responsibility.
