SA malls re-open after bomb threats


Trading resumed at two of South Africa’s biggest shopping malls following bomb threats after police found no explosive devices at either location.

The Mall of Africa, between Johannesburg and Pretoria, and Sandton City mall both closed after reporting bomb threats.
“Police searched and nothing was found and it was handed to the management,” police spokesman Lieutenant Colonel Lungelo Dlamini said of the Mall of Africa.

A similar search failed to turn up any bomb at Sandton City. Management of both malls said shopping had resumed.
