BOSTON, Mass. (WGGB) — A anticipated update from law enforcement about Monday’s bombings has been postponed.

Wednesday afternoon, a bomb threat was called in against the John Joseph Moakley Federal Courthouse in South Boston.

A spokesperson for the U.S. Attorney for Massachusetts Carmen Ortiz says that “in light of today’s events at the Moakley Courthouse,” the 5:00 p.m. press briefing, which was to be held at The Westin hotel, has been postponed.

No new day or time for that briefing has been released.
