Suspicious Bag Forces Evacuation of US Consulate in Switzerland

GENEVA – A false alarm caused by a suspicious package forced the United States consulate in Zurich to be evacuated on Monday, the Swiss city’s police reported.

Early on Monday morning, police were called to an office building, which holds the US consulate, as a suspicious package had been spotted.

Images made available by epa showed police officers sealing off the area and bringing in barricade bags in case there was a blast.

Two buildings were evacuated in total.

Specialists from Zurich’s forensic institute analyzed the suspicious bag with the appropriate measures and determined that its contents were harmless.

Nonetheless, police have launched an investigation into the incident.
