North Dakota State University officials are ordering the campus evacuated after receiving a bomb threat.
NDSU issued a statement shortly before 10 a.m. Friday telling all employees and students to leave campus within a half-hour because of a bomb threat. Students in residence halls have been told to walk to locations off campus. No other details were given.
More than 14,000 students are enrolled at NDSU.
The University of Texas at Austin also has ordered an evacuation after receiving a bomb threat. It is not known if the two threats are related.
University of Texas director of communications Rhonda Weldon says the university received a call about 8:35 a.m. from a man with a Middle Eastern accent claiming to be with al-Qaida. The man said he had placed bombs all over the campus that would go off in 90 minutes.
