Embassies building in Madrid evacuated after bomb threat
A skyscraper housing embassies in Madrid was evacuated yesterday after a bomb threat was received by telephone at the Australian embassy there, a police spokeswoman said.
The 57-storey, 235-metre-high Torre Espacio, one of four towers located in the Spanish capital's financial district, also houses the embassies of Britain and Canada. A British embassy spokeswoman said its staff had been evacuated around midday.
TV footage showed a police cordon and fire trucks outside the building.
