'Suspect package' at Israel's Ireland embassy was false alarm

An army bomb disposal unit was dispatched to the Israeli Embassy in Dublin after a suspect package was found on Tuesday morning.

There were initial reports that the embassy had been evacuated, but staff confirmed they had not been asked to leave the building.

A spokesman for the Dublin Garda later confirmed the incident had been a false alarm and the police operation had concluded.
