Samsung Hit With Bomb Threat After Bin Laden Death

After Osama's death, the US put itself somewhere on "let's be careful" and "poop your pants" level of heightened alert, bracing itself for retaliatory action. So far, so good - but Samsung, of all targets, was threatened today. By whom?

Nobody knows. The electronics mega-giant's Seoul HQ received an email bomb threat via its Canadian wing, but it seems extremely doubtful that al-Qaeda would single out a consumer electronics company instead of, say, an American embassy. Or pretty much anything other than a consumer electronics company. Still, 50 Seoul special police flocked to the HQ, just in case, though no threat's materialised. [Korea Herald via TNW]
