bomb alarm at US embassy in Berlin |
Berlin, March 20, IRNA -- German police lifted a Thursday morning
bomb alert at the United States embassy in Berlin, media reports said.
Security forces at the heavily guarded embassy, located in
downtown Berlin, discovered a mysterious black bag near the compound,
only hours after the start of an American air raid on Iraq.
Police cordoned off nearby streets and called a bomb squad to
blow up the bag.
The bomb squad, using a jet of water, destroyed the bag, however
it contained only loose papers in it.
Meanwhile, authorities stepped up security precautions at all
American, British and Israeli installations across Germany as a
result of the US war in Iraq.
