City halls in multiple German cities have been evacuated due to the possible threat of violence, police said Tuesday.
The cities of Augsburg, Kaiserslautern, Chemnitz, Goettingen, Neunkirchen and Rendsburg have been impacted, but police said the measures were taken as a precaution and there was no concrete threat.
A major police effort was underway in Augsburg. A threatening letter was sent by post to Kaiserslautern, according to a spokesman.
The evacuation has also impacted traffic in some places, including in Goettingen where public transport was diverted around the city hall.
Likewise in Augsburg, some tram and bus services have been halted.
The latest scare came after more than 100 threatening emails were apparently sent by far-right sympathizers to lawyers, politicians, journalists and even a pop star.
Some of the emails contained a bomb and other death threats, or boasted of being in possession of guns and biological weapons, German media reported.
Police have confirmed that they were investigating the threats.
