The Etienne Dolet college received a call this Thursday morning, at 10:30 am, from a person claiming that a bomb was located “outside the college” and calling for it to be evacuated, reports local radio.

Five hundred schoolchildren and staff of the establishment were evacuated during the intervention of the police, accompanied by a sniffer dog.

The alert was lifted at midday, the police having found no trace of a bomb.

Alerts taken seriously

The day before, the Max Jacob college, located in Saint-Jean-de-la-Ruelle on the outskirts of Orléans, had also had to evacuate more than 300 people after a malicious phone call.

The bomb threat was triggered when Latifa Ibn Ziaten, mother of the first victim of terrorist Mohammed Merah in 2012, was giving a conference within the establishment.

A 13-year-old minor was also arrested in connection with the case.

On Tuesday afternoon, Franklin High School in Orleans was reached by a man threatening to "blow up the high school," causing the evacuation of 1,500 people.

The Pothier high school, next to the establishment, remained confined.

No link has been established between the alerts on Tuesday and Wednesday, according to France Bleu.

Regarding the bomb threat on Thursday, psychological cells have been set up to accommodate students and staff, reports France Bleu.

Each alert is taken seriously by the academic director of the national education services in Loiret, who says he wants to apply the "precautionary principle".
