Bulgaria: Varna's Technical University Closed over Bomb Threat File photo of the Technical University in Varna.

The building of the Technical University in the Bulgarian Black Sea city of Varna was temporary closed on Thursday over the latest bomb threat in the country.

The anonymous threat was received by the112 emergency hotline around noon.

Students and faculty were evacuated, local news agencies report. The building will remain closed until Friday.

The 112 hotline was inundated by similar calls recently, particularly for a number of Sofia high schools, but also for several courts in the capital.

Shopping malls have not been spared either. The Serdika Center Mall received bomb threats both on Sunday and Monday and is still closed. On Friday, another central Mall in the capital, The Mall of Sofia, received a similar threat.

Police and bomb squads have not found traces of explosives in any of these cases.
