CNN offices and studios in the US were evacuated after receiving threats of a night bomb on Thursday night. The police and the media network, however, later said the building is completely safe.
CNN Worldwide President Jeff Zucker said on Friday in an internal statement to the employees, “The New York Police Department (NYPD) has asked all employees to return to the building after the investigation, all clear.” NYPD tweeted, “The building is completely safe. We appreciate quick action by the local authorities and the patience and professional behavior of all the employees. ‘
The NYPD said that the threat has not been confirmed at this time. According to a law enforcement source, there was talk of having five bombs in the building on an unknown call last night. After this fire alarm bell started to ring in the newsroom, causing all the employees to start getting out. During this period, records were run for half an hour during the time and then the live broadcast of the situation by the road was broadcast live.
