Spanish officials say a suspicious envelope has been discovered at the U.S. Embassy in Madrid and placed under police control, APA reports citing the Washington Post.
The finding on Thursday came as police reported a wave of explosive packages being sent in Spain’s capital, including one that ignited at the Ukrainian Embassy.
Police said other explosive devices concealed in postal packages were sent over the past two days to Spain’s Defense Ministry, a European Union satellite center in Spain and an arms factory that makes grenades sent to Ukraine.
The Spanish Interior Ministry said police detonated the envelope detected at the U.S. Embassy. There were no reports of injuries.
