Glasgow main campus evacuated after suspicious package found

UK police keeping 'open mind' in letter bombs inquiry

Police have carried out evacuations in Edinburgh and Dumfries over two reports of suspicious packages.

Scotland Yard said that, apart from the three improvised explosive devices found in London yesterday, the Met's counter-terrorism command "is not investigating any other suspicious packages in relation to this inquiry at this time".

Police in Scotland destroyed a package that was discovered in the University of Glasgow's mailroom and were called to investigate another that was received at a branch of the Royal Bank of Scotland in Edinburgh.

Today, a suspicious package was sent to a Scottish university and it is believed to be linked to the three explosive devices sent to transport hubs in London on Tuesday, Police Scotland has said.

Scottish police said they had carried out a controlled explosion on a package sent to the University of Glasgow.

The university said it had led students and staff off campus on the advice of the police.

He said bomb-disposal experts later performed a controlled explosion on the item.

‘London patient’: second case ever of HIV remission
While transplant is not the ideal option for HIV patients, it does offer hope in terms of where the researchers can take this. Essentially, the mutation prevents HIV from being able to get inside people's cells, so it can not cause infection.

Three letter bombs arrived at London transportation hubs on Tuesday: one at a building on the grounds of Heathrow Airport, one at City Centre Airport and one at Waterloo train station.

"We are working very closely with our colleagues from Police Scotland and both investigations are being run in tandem".

"There are similarities in the package, its markings and the type of device that was recovered in Glasgow to those in London", Assistant Chief Constable Steve Johnson said in a statement.

One parcel had detonated while being opened in London, but the low powered device inside only charred the packaging, according to images of the parcel distributed by London's Metropolitan Police. "As always we encourage anyone who sees something suspicious to report it to police immediately".

"We are pursuing a number of lines of enquiry".

Images of the parcels released by police show they have "Love From Ireland" postal stamps issued by the Republic of Ireland and give Dublin return-to-sender addresses.

"I can not confirm at the moment if it's connected to any Ireland-related terrorist groups", he said.
