Yekaterinburg Airport Evacuated After Bomb Threat

Yekaterinburg's Koltsovo Airport was evacuated after a bomb threat.

More than 800 people were evacuated from an airport in the Ural Mountains city of Yekaterinburg following a hoax bomb threat in the early hours of Monday morning, a news report said.

An unidentified caller phoned in the threat to the hotline of Yekaterinburg's Koltsovo Airport, but no bomb has been found, the region's transport police said in a statement, Interfax reported.

The airport resumed its normal operations within two hours, the report said.
