Ferry bomb threat called off


Linda Genborg 2012-03-16

Nothing was found onboard the Stena Line ferry Germanica. The ferry received a bomb threat on Thursday morning and was searched by police bomb dogs.

"It was in the morning that a threat was delivered via a telephone call. Then the captain decided to evacuate the staff," says Joakim Kenndahl, information manager at Stena Line, to P4 Göteborg.

Around 40 people were onboard the ferry at the time of the evacuation, which took place around 11:00 on Thursday. During the afternoon, the police searched the parts of the ship that are underwater with the help of bomb dogs, but nothing suspicious was found. The ferry was scheduled to depart to Germany at 19:00 on Thursday evening, but was delayed until around 23:00.

There are no known threats against Stena Line. The police have launched an investigation into illegal threats or raising a false alarm.
