Police confirmed that diplomats had been evacuated in the downtown area but refused to go into more details.

Moreover, diplomatic employees told BLICK that the paper bag had been labeled “for the SWAT team” and “for the US company” in English, and had a telephone number on it. According to reports, this bag has apparently triggered a police operation.
