Bomb threat at U.S. consulate in Italy was false alarm
MILAN (Reuters) - The U.S. consulate in central Milan was evacuated on Tuesday after a bomb alert, but police who searched the premises said it was a false alarm, a police officer said.
Police were called in by consulate employees when they received a suspicious letter that mentioned an explosive device, the officer said.
No further details were immediately available.
