Harvard student charged in final-exam bomb hoax

A Harvard University student was named last week in a criminal complaint alleging he was responsible for bomb threats that led officials to delay some final exams – including his – that had been scheduled for last Monday, reports CNN.

Eldo Kim (20) of Cambridge allegedly e-mailed bomb threats at about 08h30 last Monday to offices associated with Harvard, including the Harvard University Police Department and the Harvard Crimson, the student-run daily newspaper, according to the five-page complaint.

The buildings were evacuated and swept by bomb technicians and hazmat officers, and access to Harvard Yard was restricted to students with Harvard IDs, according to the Harvard Gazette, the university’s official news website. Shortly before 15h00, long after Kim's exam had been cancelled for the day, officials concluded that the threats were a hoax and reopened the buildings.
