More than 1,000 schools were closed in the Los Angeles area on Tuesday after education authorities received a bomb threat.

The Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD), the second largest public schools system in the USA, is responsible for nearly 700,000 students.

The LAUSD’s superintendent Ramon Cortines told a press briefing:

“I think it is important that I take the precaution based on what has happened recently and what has happened in the past. Before the day is over, I want every school to be searched to make sure that it is safe for children and safe for staff to be there on Wednesday.”
