US embassy 'bomb' was Statue of Liberty
14:43 CET+01:00
A suspected bomb discovered outside of the US embassy in Stockholm on Tuesday turned out to be a Statue of Liberty souvenir.

Police were called after a suspicious package was discovered on the sidewalk outside the embassy around lunchtime.

Adjacent streets were blocked off and bomb technicians were brought in to x-ray the package.

Following a careful investigation, the technicians determined that the suspected bomb was nothing more than a model of the Statue of Liberty.

“All the blockades have been lifted and police have left the scene. No threat has been directed at anyone,” said Stockholm police spokesperson Towe Hägg to the TT news agency.
