Staff I spoke to (some didn't want to) tell me they were scared, but have confindence in the security e.tv employs. What happened was that a man showed up yesterday morning at around 10:00 at the Long Kloof Studios where e.tv is based and insisted on speaking to the news editor. When he couldn't, he started screaming and threatened that he was going to blow up the place. The police were called at around 10:10 after which e.tv was evacuated and sniffer dogs sent in. The staff of 250 returned re-entered the building about an hour later at 11:00.
