Austin - The University of Texas says all university buildings have been cleared and are re-opening after a bomb threat prompted an evacuation of the Austin campus.

The university posted on its website that all classes have been cancelled for the remainder of the day on Friday but other university activities will resume by 17:00 local time.

The school had issued and alert shortly before 10:00 local time on Friday telling people to immediately evacuate all campus buildings and "get as far away as possible" after the school received a phoned-in bomb threat.
