Israeli embassy evacuated


An alert over a suspicious device at the Israeli embassy in Dublin has been declared a false alarm.

The building at Pembroke Road in Dublin was evacuated this morning after a device was reported to gardaí.

The Army bomb disposal team attended the scene, but the alert proved to be a false alarm.

Israel's foreign ministry said work in the embassy had returned to normal.

"A package attracted the attention of the staff and it was inspected but turned out that it was nothing out of the ordinary," a spokeswoman in Jerusalem said.
