SAN PEDRO CITY, Laguna, Philippines—A text message threatening an explosion in a private college in Calamba City, Laguna, prompted school officials to cancel the afternoon classes on Tuesday.

Supt. Marvin Saro, Calamba City police chief, in a phone interview, said an employee of the Colegio de San Juan de Letran, before noon, reported receiving an anonymous text message that a bomb would explode.
