Saudi, Qatar missions to UN evacuates over suspicious package

NEW YORK – A building opposite the United Nations headquarters in New York that houses the Saudi Arabia and Qatar missions to the world body was evacuated on Tuesday over a suspicious package.

A UN security official said the suspicious package was found in the Saudi Arabian UN mission. “We were told to evacuate, a suspicious package … It’s just a matter of precaution I think,” Saudi UN Ambassador Abdallah Al-Moallimi told Reuters.
