Suspicious package alert. From The Evening Standard, :
The British Embassy in the Indonesian capital of Jakarta was been evacuated after receiving a suspicious package, an embassy spokeswoman said.
Police bomb squad officers were searching the grounds of the heavily fortified mission in central Jakarta.
“We have received a suspicious package and we have informed the police,” said embassy spokeswoman Faye Belnis.
“We have evacuated the embassy and then we are still waiting for further information from the police.”
No other information was immediately available.
The alert came as Indonesia’s president warned that terrorists were planning more attacks in the country and said he had ordered security services to step up surveillance.
“We know the terrorists cells are still active, they are still hiding, recruiting, networking, trying to find new funding and even planning for another strike,” Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono said.
