False alarm over ’suspect’ package at central Athens train station

The central Athens ISAP electrical railway station on Victoria Square was briefly evacuated on Thursday morning after a suspect package was found to have been left unattended on the platform.

Railway staff called police and a bomb disposal crew to the scene, which discovered that the package was an empty cosmetics case.

The evacuation was called off and service resumed as usual shortly after noon.
