Bomb threat received for central London, police says

British police have received a bomb threat for central London believed to be related to dissident Republican groups from Northern Ireland, Scotland Yard reported Monday.

The coded threat, which led to a huge security operation, came as Queen Elizabeth II was preparing to visit the Republic of Ireland for a four-day historic visit starting Tuesday, DPA reported.

Also, US President Barack Obama and his wife Michelle, are expected on a state visit in London next week.

"A bomb threat warning has been received relating to central London today. The threat is not specific in relation to location or time," read the statement from Scotland Yard.
