Harvard Student Charged for Bomb Threats That Cancelled Exams

Federal prosecutors have a Harvard student over yesterday's bomb threats that cancelled the semester's first morning of exams. 

The FBI delivered a criminal complaint Tuesday charging Eldo Kim, a 20-year-old Harvard student from Cambridge. Four Harvard buildings shut down Monday and a morning's worth of final exams were cancelled after officials received a series of bomb threats. Kim allegedly "emailed several bomb threats to offices associated with Harvard," according to WBZ's Peter WilsonHis first court appearance is set for Wednesday. 

Here is Kim's student ID page. He works as a research assistant on campus, writes for the Harvard International Review, and dances with the Harvard Breakers. "In his free time, he enjoys playing pool, trying new restaurants, watching terrible cult films, and playing with his Mini Schnauzer puppy," it reads.
