British Police Investigating Suspect Package Amid Reports of Controlled Explosion

LONDON (Reuters) -

British police were investigating a suspicious package found near Westminster on Thursday evening, and some media reported that officers had carried out a controlled explosion.

A spokesman for London’s Metropolitan Police said they were investigating a suspicious package found on a road just up from where a man killed three people in an attack near parliament on Wednesday.

The spokesman declined to comment on a report carried by Sky News and others that police had carried out a controlled explosion on the package.
