Nine bomb threats made to international schools within Klang Valley

KUALA LUMPUR: Multiple international schools in the Klang Valley reported bomb threats this morning.

Selangor police chief Hussein Omar Khan confirmed to the New Straits Times that police have received reports from seven international schools, with two each in Petaling Jaya and Shah Alam, and one each in Kajang, Subang Jaya, and Kuala Langat.

"I can confirm there are seven in Selangor, We are still investigating the matter," Hussein said when contacted today. 

Kuala Lumpur police chief Allaudeen bin Abdul Majid mentioned that two international schools in Wangsa Maju also received bomb threats, and  police are actively investigating the situation.

The incident came to light when a message from an international school organisation, alerting parents about the bomb threats, was circulated on social media. 

The school had reportedly received an anonymous email indicating a bomb threat between 9.30am and 10.15am.

Police are treating the situation seriously, and investigations are underway to determine the credibility of the threats.
