As B92 has learned, a similar notification arrived at the ballet high school. "We have received a report of a bomb, please inform your students not to come, the same goes for the employees," reads the message from this school.
According to our reporter, the situation is the same in the elementary school "Gavrilo Princip" in Zemun. "Children are running in the yard and in front of the school, because of the report," says our source.
The message to the parents arrived this morning before 7 o'clock.
In addition to several Belgrade primary schools, the report of the bomb reached the Third and Fifth Gymnasiums this morning, as well as the First School of Economics.
We are transmitting the contents of the e-mail about the planted bombs that the schools received in full: "Strange feeling of calm as if we are waiting for a normal day, the same routine as always. We hate ourselves, but we want to hurt everyone who gets in our way. The feeling that everything around us is just a dream does not leave us. We see no reason to write anything else. In the end, we can say that we are not the first and far from the last".
The e-mail was written in Cyrillic and titled "A HUGE AMOUNT OF EXPLOSIVES HAS BEEN PLANTED ON THE SCHOOL'S TERRITORY".
