CAIRO – 26 May 2018: Authorities in Kiev, Ukraine re-opened the five metro stations that were closed after a bomb threat.
The bomb threat came on the same day of the UEFA Champions League final between Liverpool and Real Madrid.
Liverpool, with Egyptian star Mohamed Salah, aspires to achieve its sixth CL title in Kiev. Liverpool hadn’t qualified to the final since 2007, when it lost from AC Milan, and its last title was in 2005 after beating AC Milan in the penalty shootouts.
The closed stations are located in the central part of the Ukrainian capital.
The official Facebook account of the Kiev Metro said on Saturday, "The necessary tests are underway to ensure the safety of the stations from bombs."
After a few hours of searching, the five metro stations were re-opened. "The stations are checked and open for passengers. Explosive items were not found," the subway operator said on the official Facebook account.
This is the second time in history that the two teams meet in the final of the Champions League, as they facedeach other in 1981, which Liverpool won 1-0.
All the Arab world and Egyptians around the world are praying for Mohamed Salah to lead his team to win the most important title for clubs in Europe, and to continue his path to be nominated for the best player of the year.
