FCC meeting briefly evacuated ahead of net neutrality vote

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. Federal Communications Commission’s meeting on net neutrality was briefly interrupted on Thursday as the agency evacuated the meeting room before later reopening it.

It was not immediately clear what prompted the room to be evacuated. Images on a live video feed of the meeting in Washington showed law enforcement officers in the room with dogs.
