Gazprom Denies Headquarters Evacuated Over Alleged Bomb Threat

Police are investigating a bomb threat at the Moscow headquarters of state-owned natural gas giant Gazprom, the TASS news agency reported Friday, although the company denied that the building had been evacuated.

TASS earlier cited an unidentified law enforcement official as saying the building, at Nametkina street in the capital's southwest, had been evacuated, and that dogs were sniffing the building for explosives after an anonymous bomb threat was called in.

Gazprom denied that an evacuation has taken place. "All employees continue to work at their desks," a company spokesperson told TASS.
