Kiev, May 26 (IANS) Kiev’s subway reopened on Saturday after a false bomb threat caused five stations to close for several hours, subway authorities in the Ukrainian capital announced.

Kiev is to host the Champions League final match between Liverpool and title holder Real Madrid at 9.45 pm local time (6.45 pm GMT), reports Efe.
