The FBI is investigating a flurry of bomb threats reported at Jewish centers in the U.S. and Britain on Monday.

The bomb threats continued to trickle in as the FBI began investigating, the Washington Post reports.

The threats occurred in places such as the Alper Jewish community campus in the Miami-Dade area and a center in Tenafly, N.J.

At least a dozen threats were reported in the U.S. on Monday.

“It’s disturbing,” said Elise Jarvis, who directs the Anti-Defamation League’s security programs.

It’s unclear what prompted the unusual number of bomb threats.

A former KKK leader is suspected of killing three people at two Jewish centers Sunday afternoon in Kansas.

Frazier Glenn Cross, Jr., 73, is accused of shooting to death a 14-year-old Eagle Scout and his grandfather in the parking lot at the Jewish Community Center of Greater Kansas City campus in Overland Park, NBC News reports.

Authorities said he then went several blocks to Village Shalom, a retirement community, and shot a woman.

The suspect, who is from Missouri, was taken into custody and placed in a police car, where he reportedly yelled “Heil Hitler.”
Cross was no stranger to the Southern Poverty Law Center, which said Cross was a former Grand Dragon of the Carolina Knights of the KKK.
