YEKATERINBURG, July 15. /TASS/. Police in the Russian Urals region of Sverdlovsk detained a student suspected of making online bomb threats after failing to pass an exam, a local police spokesman said on Wednesday.
"The suspect signed these e-mails with the name of his teacher after failing his exams several times. He tried to take revenge on the teacher in such a criminal way," the spokesman told TASS.
The 20-year-old student is suspected of making at least 14 bomb threats to the Magnitogorsk law academy, court, city hall, the governor’s headquarters and other institutions.
He faces up to five years in prison if convicted of placing local police on false terror alerts.
