Bomb Threats Prompt Daylong Closing at Univ. of North Alabama

FLORENCE, Ala. (AP) - The University of North Alabama has shut down its campus after receiving four anonymous bomb threats by e-mail.

Authorities began searching buildings on and around the campus for any possible explosives. UNA President William Cale decided to cancel classes after the last threat was received today at about 11 am.

The summer session began last week, and hundreds of students, teachers and staff were sent home. Students living in dormitories were sent to a recreation center.

Officials plan to reopen the school Wednesday.
