Bomb scare on Monaco’s No 5 bus

Bomb scare on Monaco’s No 5 bus

By Staff Writer - April 13, 2017

5 busMonaco’s bomb squad was called out on Thursday afternoon after a passenger found a package, the size of a shoebox, apparently left on a seat and raised the alarm.

At about 2:30 pm, police and members of Monaco’s specialist bomb squad boarded the bus, which had pulled over at a bus stop on boulevard d’Italie. Every precaution was taken and the bus evacuated.

Half an hour after the alarm was first raised, the all-clear was given once the security team found that the suspicious box was empty.
