Raiffeisen gives all-clear after bomb scare in Russian offices

VIENNA (Reuters) - Austria’s Raiffeisen Bank International said on Friday police had found no explosives in any of its offices in Russia after the lender evacuated all staff from its Russian offices following a bomb warning.

The checks took two hours, but police found nothing, a spokeswoman for RBI said, adding that all staff had either returned to their offices or gone home.

RBI has around 183 offices in Russia.
