Slovak embassy in Stockholm evacuated

A PACKAGE with explosives was found on November 27 in a five-storey high building within which the Slovak embassy in Sweden is situated, the SME daily wrote.

"We suspected that the package contained explosives, which was confirmed," a Swedish police spokesman said. Experts destroyed the package and nobody in the building was endangered, the spokesperson said.

According to the Swedish media local police are searching for a suspect spotted running away from the building. The man allegedly threw the package away on the staircase.

Juraj Tomaga, spokesman with the Slovak Foreign Ministry, said that all employees of the Slovak embassy were safe. He said that the Swedish police called the embassy at around 13:00 asking that people leave the building. By 14:30 they were able to return to work.
