The personnel promptly left the Ostankino television tower today as a phone call warned about a blast coming up
The police thoroughly searched the premises with trained dogs to find no trace of explosives. It was, to all appearances, youngsters' practical joke, say city police board PR. Four similar calls came up on earlier occasions. A ransom was demanded on one. The tower was checked every time-you never can be too careful. The police failed to track down the bad boys. The Ostankino television tower, in Moscow's north, was built in 1967 as the world's highest, 540 metres. It is now ranking second after a 551 metre rival rose in Toronto. A conflagration badly damaged the Ostankino tower in August 2000. Repairs are going on to this day as thorough innovations have been taken up. New tourist lifts will have screens to show newsreels and tower history footages. The tower restaurant, once famous Seventh Heaven, will have an entirely new interior design. Blueprints are ready for a business and recreation center to adjoin the tower in 2007 or a year later. Tower excursions will resume within the year, as soon as new speed lifts are commissioned-deadline, September next. Reconstruction over, opportunities to make the tower higher will come under consideration. There are two options-18 metres and 24. If the idea finds expert approval, the Ostankino tower will regain global primacy to get taller than the Canadian by seven or thirteen metres.
