Second Bomb Threat in a Month at St. Petersburg Airport

Pulkovo International Airport has received the second bomb threat in a month.

Law enforcement agents are searching St. Petersburg's Pulkovo Airport after an unidentified caller said Friday he had planted a bomb on the territory, regional authorities said.

No flights have been delayed, and the airport's terminals did not have to be evacuated in response to incident, RIA Novosti reported, citing regional transportation police.

This is the second bomb threat Pulkovo International Airport has received this month. On May 17, the airport was evacuated for several hours following a similar incident, though the threat turned out to be a hoax.
