Suspect device at US Embassy in Dublin a hoax

Gardaí say no explosive material was found in a suspicious package that caused a security alert at the US Embassy in south Dublin this morning.

The hoax package was delivered to the main entrance of the compound just before 10.30am.

The embassy was evacuated and army bomb disposal experts were called in to examine the device.

However, they later gave the all-clear after concluding that the package contained no explosive material.

It is now being examined by garda forensic experts.
