FBI Investigates Bomb Threats Against Universities and Worship Centers

31 field offices involved in investigation.

The FBI announced Wednesday that they were currently investigating a large-scale string of bomb threats against 57 public institutions, mainly historically black colleges and universities and houses of worship. The bomb threats surged between January 4 and February 16. The FBI reported that 31 field offices are now involved in the effort to find their source.

“The bomb threats have been made in phone calls, email, instant messages, and anonymous online posts,” the FBI stated. “FBI agents from multiple field offices are conducting hundreds of interviews and gathering a variety of electronic evidence for analysis… Although at this time no explosive devices related to these threats have been found, the FBI takes all of these threats with the utmost seriousness and will remain vigilant to protect our communities.”  

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For discernment for the field agents of the FBI as they investigate bombs threats.
  • For Director Wray to seek God’s guidance as he heads the FBI.
  • For federal and local law enforcement to prevent any terror threats against universities or houses of worship.
