BOSTON — A Harvard University student was due in court Wednesday after prosecutors said he made bomb threats to try to get out of a final exam.
The U.S. attorney's office in Boston filed a criminal complaint Tuesday against Eldo Kim, 20, alleging he sent hoax emails saying shrapnel bombs would go off soon in two of four buildings on the Cambridge, Mass., campus. The emails came minutes before he was to take a final exam in one of the buildings.
The threats led to the buildings' evacuation Monday, shutting them down for hours before investigators determined there were no explosives.
Harvard said it was saddened by the allegations but would have no further comment on the investigation.
