At least nine Jewish schools in the UK received an alarming message on Monday morning, when a phone call was placed to each school with an American-accented voice making a bomb threat with “Arabic or Islamic” music playing in the background. No bombs were found, and the bomb threat is believed to be pre-recorded. It has been largely reported as a hoax.

Still, non-Jewish school received the threats as well, reported the Jerusalem Post, in London and Birmingham, and other parts of the country. A couple days ago, similar bomb threats were reported, but, again, these calls were portrayed as a hoax.
