Suspicious package found outside DND headquarters may have contained explosives


 

A report from CBC News says a suspicious package found near an entrance to the Department of National Defence headquarters in Ottawa Tuesday afternoon contained “elements consistent with an improvised explosive devices.”

Ottawa police Insp. Michael Maloney told CBC News than an X-ray of the package showed that it contained what appeared to be a timing device and an electronic trigger.

There was also a denser material on the X-ray that could have been an explosive, Maloney told the Ottawa Citizen. Police would not describe what the package looked like, citing the ongoing investigation.

Police detonated the package using a robot and no one was injured. MacKenzie King Bridge, which runs next to the building and is a major bus route, was shut down, causing traffic backups during the afternoon rush hour.

RCMP are continuing the investigation.

  1. Headline does not match content.

  2. Did they load it into a helicopter and drop it in the ocean…I Call BS on this one…More theater of the mind.Or disinformation to say the least.How convenient,Keep them scared and they will consume.

  3. I wonder what the root causes could be of someone leaving a bomb outside of DND HQ? We’d better figure that out before we try finding out who’s responsible.
