Miami police investigated a Thursday afternoon bomb threat at the New World Tower, which houses the Israeli consulate.
Miami police officer Christopher Bess said at 11:32 a.m., “our station received a call in reference to a possible explosive device being planted in the Israeli consulate.”
That phone call came from the building, which received the bomb threat by phone.
After a sweep by the bomb squad dogs, workers were allowed to return to the building around 1:40 p.m.
