The Los Angeles School District will reopen on Wednesday, after schools were closed on Tuesday following a threat of extremist attacks.

Mayor of Los Angeles Eric Garcetti said on Tuesday that the FBI has determined that the threat is not credible.

"We can now announce the FBI has determined this is not a credible threat, something we couldn't announce earlier in the day, and I want to be very careful because that does not mean that it's conclusively one thing or another yet."

An LA school board member received an email containing the threat.

The New York City school system received a similar threat on Tuesday, but it dismissed the message as a hoax and kept schools open.

More than 900 public schools, 187 charter schools were closed in the greater Los Angeles area, affecting some 640-thousand students.
