There was a bomb alert in the Allee shopping center in Budapest’s 11th district, Index reports. The Budapest Police Headquarters said that they received a bomb threat on Tuesday morning, after which the shopping center was evacuated and searched.
The police was notified of a bomb threat from the Allee shopping center at 8.10 a.m. on May 10. People inside the shopping center had to leave the building while the fire brigade searched it, the Budapest Police Headquarters (BRFK) said.
No explosives or explosive devices were found, however, and the shopping center was allowed to reopen at 10.35 am.
The BRFK District XI Police Headquarters has opened a case against an unknown perpetrator for the crime of public threatening.
As we reported earlier, several malls in Budapest and other cities across the country were alerted at the end of April. In addition to shopping malls, there were also bomb scares, for example, at the University of Pécs and at the Népliget Bus Station. However, it is not known whether explosives were eventually found anywhere.
