Madrid fake bomb scare triggers evacuation of skyscraper housing British, Australian, Dutch and Canadian embassies
Spanish police said a skyscraper in northern Madrid had been evacuated over a false bomb threat. The 57-story building houses the British, Australian, Dutch and Canadian embassies.
DW reports that people inside Madrid’s Torrespacio tower evacuated the building on Tuesday after receiving a false bomb threat, Spanish police wrote on Twitter.
The Australian embassy, which is located in the tower, received the threat by telephone, a police spokesman said.
“The threat was false. Everything goes back to normal. Police are investigating the origin of the call,” police wrote in a Tweet.
