CNN's New York Offices Temporarily Evacuated After Bomb Threat

CNN's New York Offices Temporarily Evacuated After Bomb Threat

Several fire alarm bells rang inside CNN's NY newsroom, signaling an evacuation after the call was received shortly before 10 p.m., the company's security said.

"There has been a bomb threat phoned into the CNN offices in NY", tweeted the official CNN public relations account.

"We were evacuated in the middle of my live show", Lemon tweeted.

Before allowing employees to return to work, the NYPD confirmed that a police investigation was taking place at Columbus Circle but said that the threat had not yet been substantiated.

Just two months ago, bombs were sent to the CNN, as well as top Democrats like Barack Obama and the Clintons.

"Right now CNN is airing taped programming due to the disruption", he added.

The bomb threat was called in while CNN's Don Lemon was in mid-broadcast. We grabbed what we could and got out of the building and now, we are standing outside of the building, ' Lemon said on CNN.

The caller who phoned in the threat claimed there were five bombs inside the building, New York's WNBC-TV reported, citing a police source.

The threat comes less than an hour after President Donald Trump tweeted about "fake news", a phrase which he has often labelled CNN with.

In October, the building was partially evacuated after a suspicious package containing a crude pipe bomb was delivered to the company.

On Thursday night shortly after 10 p.m. Trump tweeted "FAKE NEWS - THE ENEMY OF THE PEOPLE!"
