Police evacuate Barcelona train station after reports of ‘suspicious object’


BARCELONA (Reuters) – Police have ordered the evacuation of Barcelona’s central Plaça Catalunya train station after reports of a “suspicious object” found there, they said on Tuesday.

A Catalan police spokesperson told Reuters a security guard had detected a ticking noise in a waste bin and saw cables, prompting the station’s closing and the deployment of a bomb disposal squad and canine unit.

“We are working at Plaça Catalunya metro station in response to a report of a suspicious object. Our specialists are carrying out checks to ensure the security of the place,” police said separately on Twitter.
