Philippine Text Message Threats Investigated by Police, People Told to Stay Out of Crowded Public Places

Terror threats in the Philippines circulating through text messages on mobile phones received a swift response Monday from authorities.

The Regional director of the Philippine National Police in an interview told the Philippine Information Agency (PIA) that the text messages were bomb threats in Ormoc City, the PIA stated in a press release which gave police instructions to the public.

Police advised people to stay at home and not go to crowded places if it wasn't necessary, while they investigated what was said to be the fifth time such threats have occurred.
