Mapua suspends classes due to 'bomb threat'
MANILA, Philippines – Mapua University on Thursday, September 19, suspended classes in its Makati and Intramuros campuses over a reported bomb threat.
"Classes are suspended due to a reported bomb threat. Students and employees are required to vacate the Intramuros and Makati campus now," Mapua University said in a tweet.
It added that it would observe "digital day" and hold classes online, advising students to log into their Blackboard accounts.

It was not the first time for the university to suspend classes over a reported bomb threat. Exactly a year ago – September 18, 2018 – Mapua suspended classes and work in its Manila campus for the same reason, but it turned out to be a false alarm. – Rappler.com
