Los Angeles: 1,000 schools closed after email threat

Los Angeles schools have been closed due to a threat emailed to the school district, two weeks after the deadly attacks in California.

The shutdown closed more than 1,000 schools attended by 640,000 students across the city and beyond.

A school district spokesman said it involved rucksacks, and they were exercising "an abundance of caution".

David Willis reports.
