- Story Text:A bomb threat which prompted the evacuation of Malaysia's stock exchange on Friday (September 30) was a hoax, state news agency Bernama reported, quoting police.
The police bomb disposal unit declared the Bursa Malaysia building safe and no suspicious object had been found, authorities said.
Staff were allowed back in the building about three hours after the threat was received.
Bursa had said in a statement earlier that it received a bomb threat shortly after noon. Trading resumed as normal after lunch.
