Car Bomb Threat Prompts Closing of Federal Buildings in Portland

Federal buildings in Portland, Oregon were closed Friday due to a reported threat that a vehicle laden with explosives would be driven into them. The Mark O. Hatfield federal courthouse and the U.S. bankruptcy court were closed, as well as other federal buildings, according to reports.
