Thousands of travelers were held up for hours this weekend when a popular British Columbia ferry line suspended its services after police received a bomb threat they considered credible. David Hahn, chief operating officer of B.C. Ferries, said someone with a Middle Eastern accent called in the threat in a call to an emergency dispatcher at about 3:30 p.m. Saturday from a mall in suburban Coquitlam. "Whether it was a Middle Eastern caller is a different issue, but that was the accent they were using," Hahn said.
