White House condemns string of bomb threats to Jewish centers
Eleven Jewish Community centers were shaken by another wave of bomb threats Monday, forcing evacuations in 10 states across the United States. Law enforcement officials were investigating the threats and, as of late Monday, centers were being reopened after explosive devices were not found. There have now been at least 67 incidents at 56 Jewish Community Centers in 27 states and one Canadian province since the start of 2017.
Responding to a query, the White House press secretary said: “Hatred and hate-motivated violence of any kind have no place in a country founded on the promise of individual freedom,” he said. “The President has made it abundantly clear that these actions are unacceptable.”
