In addition to a bomb threat received on Friday morning via e-mail, the MRT operator also received an e-mail at about 7am yesterday saying that a mass killing would occur on the transit system. Police have identified a suspect and the public should not be worried, Chiang said. Taipei Mayor Chiang Wan-an speaks to reporters in Taipei yesterday. The division yesterday said the two e-mails were tracked to the sender’s Internet protocol address, which was routed through an overseas virtual private network.
