Police search German schools after email threats

AFP  |  Berlin 

Police were searching at least a dozen schools across after they received threats by email today, although officials said they didn't believe the messages constituted a serious danger.

Nine schools in the eastern city of Leipzig were emailed threats, a police spokesman said, without giving details of the content of the messages.



Investigators were searching the premises while students and teachers were told not to leave the site, he said.

Schools in the western city of Goettingen as well as the eastern city of Magdeburg also reported receiving similar messages.

The investigation suggests however that the "threats are not serious," the police spokesman said.
