CNN’s New York Office Evacuates Over Bomb Threat

CNN's NY offices were evacuated on Thursday night before employees were allowed to return.

A bomb squad was on standby outside the building as police officers search the offices, a law enforcement source said.

"Employees have been evacuated and the NYPD is investigating", they added.

The network is airing taped programming due to the disruption, including "Anderson Cooper 360" on the East Coast.

Police have given the all-clear after a phoned in bomb threat forced the evacuation of CNN's offices in NY.

It didn't take long for some people to link the bomb threat to US President Donald Trump and his war of words with mainstream media.

CNN host Don Lemon tweeted, "We were evacuated in the middle of my live show" due to a bomb threat. "We grabbed what we could and go out of the building and now we're standing out front there", Lemon said.

CNN aired taped programming because of the evacuation, CNN said.

The network's bureau was evacuated in October after a package with an explosive device, addressed to former CIA Director John Brennan, was discovered, officials said.
