Numerous Jewish community centers on the east coast received anonymous bomb threats via phone Monday, forcing evacuations and police responses.
Some of the calls were prerecorded while others were live, and likely came from the same telephone number.
NBC reported threats were made to facilities as far apart as New Jersey, Florida, Maryland, Tennessee and South Carolina. In a statement, the Anti-Defamation League said threats were also received in Delaware.
Facilities across the county were evacuated, though authorities did not discover any explosive devices.
Jewish schools in London also received bomb threats, though it was not clear whether the incidents are connected. Read more

Hatshepsut’s temple at Deir el-Bahari (الدير البحري, “Monastery of the Sea”), a complex of temples and tombs on the west bank of the Nile, across from Luxor. It’s part of the Theban Necropolis. The Mortuary Temple of Hatshepsut is a colonnaded structure, designed by Senenmut, royal steward and architect of Hatshepsut (and believed by some to have been her lover), to serve for her posthumous worship and to honor the glory of Amun. It sits atop colonnaded terraces, reached by ramps that once had gardens. Today, the terraces only convey a faint impression of the original intentions of Senenmut. Most of the statues are missing - the statues of Osiris in front, the sphinx avenues in front of the court, and standing, sitting & kneeling figures of Hatshepsut; these were destroyed in the posthumous condemnation of this pharaoh. The temple architecture has been considerably altered as a result of misguided reconstruction in the early 20th century.
