LOS ANGELES (AP) – Schools in the Los Angeles area will reopen today, following threats of a large-scale jihadi attack that shut down the entire school district on Tuesday.

New York City schools received the same threat, but dismissed it as a hoax and continued with classes.

In LA, the threat came in the form of an email to a school board member.
