Police detain high-school student over false bomb alert in Minsk school

The teenager called the police by phone to report that the school was mined. The students were evacuated from the building out to school's backyard stadium. The building was sealed by a team of rescuers.

After the demolition squad left the school premises at about 13.45, access to the building was re-opened. Luckily, no bomb was found in the school, Nasha Niva reports.

According to Minsk City Police, the plotter was quickly identified. He was a fifteen-year-old student from another high-school. He was detained and delivered to Savetski District police department for further inquiries. The underage carried out a similar "act of bravery" two years ago.
