Reuters – Police in Australia said on Wednesday (January 9) they are investigating several suspicious packages sent to embassies and consulates, which media reports and other officials said included the U.S. and British missions, in the cities of Melbourne and Canberra.

There were no immediate reports of any harm to staff.

“The packages are being examined by attending emergency services,” the Australian Federal Police (AFP) said in a short statement without providing further details.

Police did not identify any of the embassies or consulates involved, although the Australian newspaper reported that missions affected included the United Kingdom, New Zealand, India, Japan, Pakistan, South Korea, Germany, Greece, Spain, Seychelles, Switzerland, Croatia, and Egypt.
