      KC City Hall evacuated after bomb threat

      The City Hall in Kansas City has been evacuated because of a bomb threat.

      Police on Tuesday morning also closed streets around City Hall and have been sweeping the building after someone called to say a bomb was placed in the building Monday afternoon.

      The Kansas City Star reports the threat was called in about 8:30 a.m. in the middle of public testimony about the future of Kansas City International Airport. The meeting will resume in two weeks.

      The building sweep is expected to take about an hour.
