Turkish security officials searched a passenger plane at an Istanbul airport after a bomb threat was made and a passenger demanded to fly to Sochi, Russia, where the Winter Olympics got underway Friday.
While Texas A&M University remains closed for normal operations, students, faculty and staff will be allowed back on campus to retrieve their personal items and vehicles starting at 4pm. It has been five hours since the initial threat was received, and the investigation is still ongoing.
The University of Texas at Austin said students could return to buildings on its main campus at noon on Friday after evacuating due to bomb threats received in the morning. The school's website said that the remainder of Friday classes were canceled but other activities scheduled on the campus will resume at 5 p.m.
