The authorities in Los Angeles have defended their decision to close all public schools for the day because of a suspected security threat. A similar threat was received in New York where the authority said it was not credible, the city's police chief for the Los Angeles' closure a significant overreaction. Peter Bowes reports. "Officials say they decided to closedown the entire public school system out of what they called an abundance of caution after theyve received a threat in an email. The authority said they would search every school in the district to make sure they were safe for pupils to return. As that got underway, New York City officials reviewed they had received the same threat, but quickly dismissed it. A member of the House Select Committee on intelligence has since said the threat is believed to be a hoax."

因遭遇潜在安全威胁,洛杉矶决定所有公立学校停课一天,其相关部门捍卫这项决议。纽约也遇到相似的情况,但他们表示这并不可信,甚至认为提出闭校的洛杉矶警局局长明显反应过度。皮特.鲍斯报道,“洛杉矶官员称他们收到了一封恐吓邮件,出于谨慎,做出了关闭所有公立校的决定。有关当局称他们会仔仔细细地检查管辖区域内的所有小学,保证每个学生都安全回家。纽约市的官员也同时收到类似的恐吓邮件,但他们很快就忽略了。一位情报特别委员会的成员称这很有可能只是一场恶作剧。”
