UT Director of Communications Rhonda Weldon said the university got a call around 8:35 a.m. from a male with a Middle Eastern accent claiming to have placed bombs all over campus. He said he was with al-Qaida and that these bombs would go off in 90 minutes.
Obviously sounds like a hoax (al qaeda wouldn't call in their bombs, they'd just let them go off), but they have to play it safe.
