No Bombs Found at Long Branch Synagogues


No bombs were found Tuesday night after a phone call was received warning that explosives had been placed in several synagogues in Long Branch, New Jersey. Police are continuing to search for suspects in the case as concerns by the community continued into Wednesday.

Bomb-sniffing dogs and dozens of agents from the Federal Bureau of Investigation were deployed at Congreation Ohel Simcha, where a wedding had been in progress, and Congregation Brothers of Israel. Both places were pronounced safe at midnight.
