Harvard University campus

Cambridge, Nov 17: Days after the deadly terror attacks in Paris, Harvard University has received a bomb threat following which several buildings have been evacuated.

“An unconfirmed bomb threat has been received. The Science Ctr, Sever, Emerson, and Thayer Halls are being evacuated,” the university’s official website said.

The buildings have been evacuated and law enforcement officials are on scene. Entry to the Yard is restricted.

The four buildings are being searched. The process is likely to take several hours.

New ISIS video threatens Washington

Meanwhile, in a new video released by the ISIS, the terrorists have issued a warning saying that Washington should brace itself for an attack similar to the Paris carnage.

The Washington Post reports that the terrorists were seen lauding the Paris shootings, however, the authenticity of the video could not be immediately confirmed but it bears close resemblance to the former videos released by the ISIS.

The video which lasts for 11 minutes, reportedly showed clips of the aftermath following the airstrikes on the ISIS stronghold by French President Francois Hollande

A man identified as “Al Karar the Iraqi”, threatened the ‘crusader’ nations who are fighting together against the ISIS and the U.S capital was specifically singled out, according to the daily.

“We say to the states that take part in the crusader campaign that, by God, you will have a day, God willing, like France’s and by God, as we struck France in the center of its abode in Paris, then we swear that we will strike America at its center in Washington,” the man says in the video.

Another man in the video warned the European nations of Paris-style attacks. He was seen saying that the terror outfit was heading their way with ‘booby traps, explosives, and gun silencers’ and that they will be unstoppable as they have never been this strong before, the daily said.
