From Daily Mail:

A Danish bomb squad has surrounded the US Embassy in Copenhagen this afternoon after a ‘suspicious object’ was found by police.

The building has been cordoned off and people have been told to stay away.

The US Embassy in Denmark tweeted: ‘The Copenhagen Police is investigating a suspicious item near the Embassy. Please follow @KobenhavnPoliti for latest updates. We advise people to stay away from area near the Embassy.’

It is not yet clear if any explosives have been found.

Europe remains on high alert after a wave of terror attacks over the last three years.


UPDATE: 8:06 a.m – The Danish police have lifted the cordon and declared the object to be safe.

Translated from Danish by Bing: We cancel the blockade again at the U.S. Embassy. EOD has now examined a package and after review, it can be stated that the package did not contain anything suspicious #politidk
