KLCC Bomb scare: No, you can’t take a chance that it is nothing!

Abandoned bags spur bomb scare at KLCC

MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING

It began innocently enough. Four students from Negri Sembilan came to KLCC for a good time. They left the bags lying there between the entrance of the tower and Suria KLCC Ampang entrance and walked off.

Someone saw the bags, became suspicious, and informed the KLCC security unit which called the police, who arrived from the Dang Wangi police headquarters. ThePolice Bomb Disposal Unit came, of course, and so did 3 fire engines from three fire stations, Keramat, Hang Tuah and Unit Hazmat KLCC, and one fire engine from its Hazardous Materials Unit.

What were in the bags? Mostly clothes.
