    Poor journalism - just simple editing and the article would have been attention getting, more informative and most of all, would not have caused the reader to focus on the "effect" rather than the "cause".

    "Police believe the threats were false."

    Um, since the threats were made in January, and the place hasn't exploded yet - that's a pretty good guess!
