A bomb threat at the Franco-Hellenic Lycee Eugene Delacroix in the northern suburbs of Athens on Thursday morning led to pupils and staff being temporarily evacuated while police forces conducted inspections on the premises.

The French Embassy in Greece kept parents informed through its Twitter account, while the school director announced that the alert was over at 10.30 a.m.

According to a school announcement the threat was discovered to be a hoax.
