Suspicious item causes evacuation of Trump Tower


Trump Tower was evacuated on Tuesday following discovery of a “suspicious package” in the lobby of the building.


The New York Bomb Squad quickly responded at the 58-storey skyscraper in Midtown Manhattan which houses the U.S President-Elect and serves as the headquarters for Donald Trump’s transition team.


Authorities have given an ‘all clear’ as the bag in question contained some bunch of kids’ toys.

Mid Tuesday afternoon, traffic came to a halt as police closed Madison Avenue between 55th and 58th streets.
