A phone call has been placed Sunday on the emergency 112 hotline, alerting of a bomb at the Serdika Center Mall in the Bulgarian capital Sofia.
A female voice has called around 10:25 am, according to the Interior Ministry's press center.
The large building, located on Sitnyakovo boulevard, has been evacuated and police are checking the premises.
Just two days ago, another central Mall in the capital, The Mall of Sofia, on Alexander Stamboliyski boulevard, received a bomb threat as well. The Mall was closed, but police and bomb squads did not find any trace of explosives.
The 112 hotline was inundated by similar calls last week, particularly for a number of Sofia high schools. They are deemed pranks, and, according to the police, teens placed them because they did not want to attend classes.
