    Tokyo courts evacuated, trials rescheduled after bomb threats

    TOKYO (XINHUA) – Two courts in Tokyo were forced to evacuate and cancel trials yesterday afternoon after receiving bomb threats, local media reported.

    According to Japan’s public broadcaster NHK, the Tokyo High Court cancelled its trials and evacuated visitors after someone threatened to blow up the government building at around 1.30pm local time yesterday.

    The building is located in central Tokyo, along with the high court, which also houses the Tokyo District Court. Access to the building was prohibited until police were consulted, local media said.

    Trials scheduled for yesterday afternoon, meanwhile, will be rescheduled for another day, the courts said.

    The Immigration Services Agency of Japan received an email at around 3.25am local time saying, “I will blow up the Tokyo District Court at 1.34pm local time on Monday,” local police said, adding the message included the name of a male individual.
