SEATTLE (Reuters) - The campus of Gonzaga University in Spokane, Washington, was being evacuated on Thursday due to a "non-specific bomb threat," emergency officials said.

Police and school safety officials issued a campus-wide alert, asking everyone to evacuate all buildings, and close all room doors and windows, as a sweep of the campus was performed.
