Police are evacuating several major shopping malls in Moscow after a series of anonymous bomb threats via phone, local media outlets have reported, citing security sources.

The GUM department store, a major tourist site located on Red Square, is being evacuated due to a bomb threat, police sources told TASS and Interfax news agencies.  Police are waiting for sniffer dogs and bomb disposal experts to arrive at the scene.

I wonder what people who call in bomb threats really hope to accomplish because there are usually no bombs if it's called in first. There's the economic end of shutting businesses and then there's the prospect of some time off work. Then, again, there's the terror it puts in people who will no longer feel safe at their workplace. Just trying to figure out who benefits from these things.
