Almar Atlason, who is spending the week in a glass box under the watchful eye of a streaming video camera, is being watched by a number of people via the internet.

Professor Ólafur Sveinn Gíslason reports a phone call was placed to the Academy’s office by a threatening individual, who made indecent remarks. Police have been notified. A group of people also gathered in front of the Academy overnight, shouting, and attempted to break into the building.
