Officials at the University of Texas at Austin issued an alert Friday morning asking everyone to evacuate the campus as quickly as possible.
“Evacuation due to threats on campus. Immediately evacuate ALL buildings and get as far away as possible. More information to come.”
Reports said at 8:35 a.m., the university got a call from a man with a Middle Eastern accent claiming to have placed bombs all over campus. He said he was with Al Qaeda and that the bombs would go off in 90 minutes. The president of the university was notified and it was decided to evacuate all of the buildings.
