VILNIUS – An anonymous call that explosives have been planted at Kaunas Hydro Power Plant, one of Lithuania's strategically important facilities, proved to be a hoax on Monday. 

The caller told the police at just after 11 a.m. that the plant would explode at 1 p.m. 

"Officers and colleagues from the Public Security Service checked the accesses and internal premises, and found no suspicious items," Kaunas police spokeswoman Odeta Vaitkeviciene told BNS.

On Monday morning, the police received false calls about explosives at Kaunas and Vilnius airports. Last week, a bomb threat targeting the capital's airport also proved to be a hoax.
