    Hisham Saadi, the man charged with making bomb threats that forced Concordia University to evacuate three of its buildings last month, will reside at a centre that specializes in psychological counselling after having undergone a psychiatric evaluation. 

    The 47-year-old appeared before Quebec Court Judge Nathalie Fafard on Thursday to have his release conditions modified. Following a bail hearing held early in March, Saadi was required to reside at a hospital in Montreal while undergoing an evaluation to determine his mental state at the time he allegedly emailed threats that prompted the university to evacuate three buildings, sending thousands of students, faculty and other staff into the streets on March 1.
