Suspected bomb threat forces evacuation of five subway stations in Kiev

Ukrainian security forces inspected five subway stations in Kiev after they received a warning call about an alleged bomb threat in the subway of the capital at around 1pm local time on Saturday. Passengers were evacuated from areas potentially affected by the threat. The bomb alert proved to be false after searches were carried out, and the stations reopened after an hour.
