    The airport of the Russian city of Vladikavkaz was evacuated earlier on Friday following a bomb threat, several Russian media outlets have reported.

    "The airport received an anonymous message about a bomb at around 12.00 pm local time (9.00 am GMT). Law enforcers are currently conducting a search operation on the territory of the airport, while employees and passengers have been evacuated," a source said.

    According to preliminary data, the treat was false, though no official comment has been provided yet.
