Bomb threat at US Embassy in Copenhagen

Rulle Marie robot reportedly use to deal with suspicious looking bottle

The authorities have closed off Dag Hammarskjölds Allé in the Copenhagen district of Østerbro amid reports that a suspicious object has been found at the US Embassy. 

Police officers, fire-fighters, a bomb disposal unit and several ambulances have been present at the scene for just over an hour.

Suspicious looking bottle
Eye-witnesses report the use of a Rulle Marie robot that might have retrieved a suspicious looking bottle, which had been wrapped in duct tape, near the main entrance of the building.

The embassy was quickly evacuated, and a man from the fire department used a megaphone to warn residents to stay away from windows.
