There was yet another school bomb hoax in Paphos on Friday, the third this week, with police ordering the evacuation of a middle school in Agios Theodoros to conduct a search.
Police said a phone call was placed on Friday around 12 noon to the administration offices of Agios Theodoros Middle School in Paphos, warning of a bomb threat.
Law enforcement officers as well as members of the bomb squad rushed to the school, where a complete evacuation had been ordered.
Following a thorough search, with bomb technicians standing by just in case, nothing suspicious was found and the place was declared safe.
The bomb scare is the third bomb threat incident involving a school in Paphos. On Wednesday a school was evacuated in Yeroskipou and another one downtown a day later. And few days further back, multiple evacuations had been ordered in two shopping malls, a casino, and a flight that was just about ready to take off in Larnaca.
