YEKATERINBURG, October 16 (Itar-Tass) —— Police in the town of Revda in the Sverdlovsk region have detained a woman over a bomb threat at a local hospital, a spokesman for the regional police department told Itar-Tass on Tuesday.
According to the spokesman, the woman, a jobless local resident, said she had reported about a bomb planted at the hospital to take vengeance on the hospital’s doctors for her father’s death there.
“She made a call from her home telephone to the hospitals’ surgery department and asked to evacuate all the patients over a threat of a terrorist act,” he said.
A criminal case has been opened against her on charges of hoax terrorist act report. These charges carry a punishment of a prison term up to three years.
“The woman has a minor child, so she is likely to be released under recognizance not to leave,” the spokesman added.
According to earlier reports, some 500 people, including patients in grave condition, were evacuated from the hospital. No explosive devices were found. The patients are being taken back to the hospital.
According to the regional health ministry, none of the patients in grave condition has been hurt. Their health is out of danger.
