Authorities were alerted at 9:10 a.m. local time (01:10 GMT) to threats to “18 sites in Singapore, including government buildings, embassies and other important locations,” police said in a statement.
Searches on the spot did not make it possible to discover “no object threatening security”, added the police, without specifying if evacuations had taken place.
The Ministry of the Environment said 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 gives false information about bomb threats,” she said.
