Los Angeles defends school closure after apparent email hoax

A police vehicle pulls up outside a closed school near downtown Los Angeles on December 15, 2015Los Angeles city officials defended their decision to shut down all public schools on Tuesday in response to an email threat that appears to have been a hoax. The drastic measure was ordered as a precaution, triggered in part by the December 2 attacks in nearby San Bernardino that left 14 people dead, said Ramon Cortines, the superintendent of Los Angeles schools — the second-largest school district in the US with 640,000 students. A similar threat was also made against New York City schools, but officials there said they deemed it not credible from the onset and accused Los Angeles school officials of badly overreacting.
