CHISINAU, August 25 (Itar-Tass) —— A telephone call, by which an unknown individual alerted the police on a bomb allegedly planted inside a Moldovan passenger train en route from Moscow to Chisinau, has proved to be phony, a spokesman for the Moldovan Interior Ministry's Service for Civil Defense said.

Train No. 342 was stopped at the station of Volochinets on the Ukrainian-Moldovan border Saturday morning and passengers of four coaches were evacuated. Meals and freshwater were provided for them.

After that demolition experts searched for the bomb in the coaches but did not find anything.

Early reports indicated that the phone call, which appears to be a sheer instance of what is known as ‘telephone terrorism’ across the former Soviet Union, was made from the territory of Ukraine.

Train No. 342 continued the trip to Chisinau upon completion of the incident.
