Moscow checks information on mining schools and courts

It is reported by Interfax, citing a source familiar with the situation.

 Among these educational institutions is school number 760, located in buildings at two addresses - on Yaroslavl highway, 147 and Losevskaya street, 9.

 According to the agency, a total of about two thousand people were evacuated from "mined" educational institutions.

 In addition, on December 5, law enforcement agencies received reports about the mining of five capital courts - Zyuzinsky, Butyrsky, Golovinsky, Simonovsky and Koptevsky.  The evacuation of workers and visitors to these institutions has begun, reports TASS.  Before this, it became known about the evacuation of the buildings of Chertanovsky, Troitsky, Lefortovsky, Gagarinsky, Khoroshevsky, Cheryomushkinsky, Tagansky and Timiryazevsky district courts.

 On December 4, Moscow inspected the buildings of more than 20 educational institutions after reports of explosives planted in them.

 A day earlier, unknown persons reported mining the Cathedral of Christ the Savior in the center of Moscow.  Also, due to the threat of an explosion, an audit was conducted at the Central Clinical Hospital.  All of these messages turned out to be false.

 The wave of "mining" began in Moscow and St. Petersburg on November 28.  Unknowns send out threatening emails.  A law enforcement source said that anonymous letters come from abroad, presumably from Ukraine.
