Hungary bomb threats

Keywords: Hungary

"Three large Budapest shopping centers were evacuated on Thursday due to bomb threats but there was no link to suspected terror attacks in London, Prime Minister Ferenc Gyurcsany said.

'We have not found any indication of a link between the London and Budapest events,' Gyurcsany told a news conference. He gave no details.

Bomb threats have been frequent in Budapest in recent years, but so far all have proved to be hoaxes.

Interior minister Monika Lamperth said police received a phone call at 0720 GMT from a public payphone informing that bombs would go off at the shopping centers at 1400 GMT, prompting officials to order evacuation of the buildings.

Police were searching the centers while hundreds of people patiently waited outside for an all-clear to go back in."
