Polish police say three Warsaw polling stations had bomb alerts

WARSAW (Reuters) -Three polling stations in the Polish capital Warsaw received bomb alerts as Poles voted in parliamentary elections on Sunday, leading to people being evacuated, a police spokesperson said.

“About 200 people were evacuated from three polling stations, bomb disposal experts were called and the incident is ongoing,” spokesperson Sylwester Marczak said.

Voting in the election is scheduled to end at 1900 GMT.

The press office of Poland’s electoral commission said it did not have any information regarding whether the incidents would delay the end of voting.
