The left-wing "Die Linke" political party evacuated their headquarters in Berlin on Monday, after receiving a bomb threat. The police said the situation was safe later on Monday.
The left-wing political party "Die Linke" was forced to evacuate its Berlin headquarters on Monday, saying that it had received a bomb threat by email.
The search was called off early afternoon Monday, with police representatives saying that the serious situation was over.
"Right-wing terror reaches us in the form of a threat," the party wrote on Twitter. "An emailed bomb threat leads to an early lunch break."
Forty people working at the Karl-Liebknecht-House headquarters had been told to leave the building as police began a search for the bomb.
Police investigators said in March that they had recorded over 100 incidents of threatening letters sent out in early 2019. The center-left SPD party headquarters was evacuated in 2015 due to a bomb scare, and 500 people were told to leave an ICE train in Frankfurt last year, after a similar threat.
Both were false alarms. The same police report said they believed right-wing extremists were behind the threats.
