Authorities were alerted at 9:10 a.m. local time (01:10 GMT) to threats to “18 locations in Singapore, including government buildings, embassies and other important places,” police said in a statement.

During on-site searches, it was not possible to discover “any item that posed a security risk,” police added, without specifying whether evacuations had taken place.

The Environment Ministry announced on Facebook that it had received one of these bomb threats. “Nothing was found,” he added.

“Police take all security threats seriously and will not hesitate to prosecute anyone who makes false statements about bomb threats,” she said.
