German police evacuate school near Leipzig, search for explosives

BERLIN (Reuters) - German police have evacuated a technical school in Borsdorf near the eastern city of Leipzig after an unknown man told students not to go into school because he had explosives in his backpack, a police spokesman said on Wednesday.

The spokesman said the search was ongoing and police have yet to find any explosives or identify the man who claimed to have them in his backpack.
