BOSTON (Reuters) - Four buildings were briefly evacuated at Western Connecticut State University in Danbury on Friday afternoon after an emailed bomb threat, and all were cleared after being checked by police bomb-sniffing dogs, officials said.

"All buildings at both the Midtown and Westside campuses have returned to normal operation," the university said on its web site.
