A 10-year-old boy has been charged with making a terrorist threat after threatening "blow up some teachers" and bring bombs to his elementary school, officials said. The boy was arrested after one of the children relayed the threat to school officials and, on Oct. 20, officials and police found the student's backpack in a classroom with two devices inside. The boy said the devices were bombs, but officials said they were not flammable or explosive. The boy has been charged as a juvenile with four counts of making terrorist threats and two counts of possessing a destructive device. The boy's name was not released because he is a minor.
