LONDON | UK teen jailed for 3 years for bomb hoaxes
LONDON — A British teenager has been jailed for three years after his bogus bomb threats led to school evacuations and an airport security incident.
George Duke-Cohan, 19, touched off panic in March 2018 when he emailed thousands of schools, warning about an explosive. The National Crime Agency says more than 400 schools were evacuated.
He later caused a scare by telephoning San Francisco Airport and claiming his daughter had contacted him while on a United Airlines flight from Heathrow to say her plane had been hijacked.
