A bomb threat was sent to MIT yesterday via an anonymous e-mail, according to a press release from the MIT Police Department. The police did not find any evidence to substantiate the threat. MIT was one of many schools to receive the e-mail threat, including Princeton University, The University of New Hampshire, The University of Iowa, and Carnegie-Mellon University. The e-mails also prompted small evacuations at Clemson University and Cornell University.
