The party headquarters for Germany's Social Democrats (SPD) has been evacuated following a bomb threat, Reuters reported. The party, which is based in Berlin, says it has received numerous threats with racist overtones since Monday.
"The Willy Brandt Haus has been evacuated because of a bomb threat," German tabloid BILD tweeted.
Yasmin Fahimi, the SPD's general secretary, said the party received a bomb threat at 3 p.m. and immediately ordered all of its workers out of the building, The Local reported.
According to the SPD, threats have been coming in since the party's chairman, Sigmar Gabriel, visited the eastern German town of Heidenau on Monday, showing support for officials who faced violent protests while escorting asylum seekers into a shelter over the weekend.
