German police on Monday evacuated the headquarters of the Social Democratic Party (SPD) in Berlin after a suspicious object was found in the mailroom, a party spokesman said.
All employees had to leave the building, including senior SPD members who were meeting in the Willy Brandt Haus for a weekly board meeting to discuss their party manifesto for the Sept. 24 election, the spokesman said.
In March German authorities intercepted a package containing a book concealing explosives and addressed to Finance Minister Wolfgang Schaeuble, who is from Chancellor Angela Merkel's conservatives.
A Greek militant group, Conspiracy of Fire Cells, claimed responsibility for sending the package.
The center-left SPD is currently the junior partner in Merkel's coalition government.
