BOSTON (AP) - Attorneys in Boston have agreed that a Harvard University student accused of making a bomb threat to get out of a final exam can be released on $100,000 bond.

Federal prosecutors withdrew their request Wednesday to hold 20-year-old Eldo Kim. He will be released into the custody of his sister, who lives in Massachusetts, and an uncle from North Carolina. Attorneys aren't saying where he will stay.

Under the conditions of his release, he cannot enter Harvard's campus without prior approval of Harvard and the federal court.

Federal public defender Ian Gold has been appointed to represent him but he may get a private attorney later.

Gold says Kim became a naturalized U.S. citizen in fifth grade and renounced his South Korean citizenship.
