‘Bombs’ at KLCC turn out to be science experiment stuff

Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Khalid Abu Bakar confirms that two objects found at Aquaria, Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre (KLCC) are not explosives after news of their denotation went viral on social media. He said the objects were materials for experiments which were left there by students visiting the place today. "Preliminary investigation on the two bottles at the KLCC showed they were not explosives but were experiment materials left by school students. "The lamp-in-a-bottle experiment is named STARLAB by Petrosains and had been given to the students as souvenirs," Khalid said in his Twitter. Khalid said students from a school in Bukit Beruntung left the two bottles at KLCC and they were thought to be bombs by the individual who found them. Dang Wangi district police chief ACP Zainol Samah said the objects were found at 5.15pm by a cleaner who alerted security at 5.30pm. "We rushed to the scene after receiving a report on the objects with a Bomb Disposal Unit (UPB) and sniffer dogs. UPB destroyed the objects at 8pm using a UPB robot," he said. KLCC communications manager Kuzaimah Idris said the two objects were left unattended at the concourse level. – Bernama, March 9, 2016.]]>
