Harvard Boston cancels final exams over blast fears

Published: Monday December 16, 2013 | 10:54 am Comments 0

Final exams at the Harvard University's campus near Boston were cancelled today after the school's police department received an unconfirmed report that explosives may have been placed in the building.

Four buildings on the school's campus were evacuated.

Earlier a tweet on the university's twitter account advised students to evacuate the four buildings immediately.

Final exams have begun at the Ivy League school in Cambridge, and many of the students who had to leave went to Annenberg Hall, another campus building, according to the school's paper, The Harvard Crimson.

Three of the evacuated buildings border Harvard Yard and the other is the school's science center.
