FRANKFURT (Reuters) - German police on Friday gave the all-clear after 500 passengers were evacuated from a train due to a bomb threat.

Police stopped the high-speed train, travelling from Zurich to the northern German city of Kiel, at Frankfurt Sued station, after receiving a bomb threat via telephone, a spokesman said.

But he said police had not found a bomb while searching the train at the station, in Germany's financial capital, and passengers were able to continue their journey.
