Hundreds of bomb threats against schools, airports and other facilities have plagued France for two weeks. Police officers have now been able to solve one of the cases.
A ten-year-old is behind an attack threat against a primary school in northern France. Investigators have determined that the child posted the threat against the school in Cambrai on the Tiktok platform, the broadcaster BFMTV reported, citing the police.
The boy used his mother’s phone to do this. Instead of a day off school, the threat caused a lot of trouble for the boy and his family. Her house was searched by investigators for explosives. Everyone was summoned to the station. The parents were temporarily taken into police custody. The boy was examined by a child psychologist.
Hundreds of bomb threats against schools, airports and other facilities have kept France in suspense for two weeks. So far it has always been a false alarm. The threats have increased since the fatal attack by a young Islamist on a teacher in Arras almost two weeks ago. The highest terror alert level in the country was then imposed.
Young people were identified as being responsible for a number of threats. Videos of school evictions are sometimes viewed millions of times on social networks, the police said.
