AUSTIN, Texas (Reuters) - The University of Texas at Austin ordered an emergency evacuation of all buildings on Friday due to threats.

Update at 11:14 a.m. ET: KXAN-TV reports that the university's Director of Communications, Rhonda Weldon, says the university got a call around 8:35 a.m. local time from a male with a middle eastern accent claiming to have placed bombs all over campus.

The caller claimed to be from the Al-Qaeda terrorist organization and that the bombs would go off in 90 minutes, KXAN reports..

President Williams Powers has been notified, and officials arenow evacuating all of the buildings out of an abundance of caution.

Update at 11:12 a.m. ET:A UT official tells the American-Statesman that the university had received multiple bomb threats to multiple buildings.

First of all, terrorists rarely give a heads up. Seems like some students didn't study for Friday's exams.

Agree you usually have someone claiming credit after the bomb goes off

More likely someone like the nutjob who kept calling in bomb threats to Pitt last spring combined with copycat nutjobs
