Scottish officials said Tuesday that the Scottish Parliament has re-opened after it was partially evacuated because of suspicious packages.
The Scottish parliament in Edinburgh was evacuated earlier in the same day after a suspicious package was found, with a source saying a suspicious white powder had been sent to a Conservative Party lawmaker.
"It's a white powder incident, there were a couple of suspicious packages sent to a Tory (Conservative) MSP," the source at the parliament told Reuters.
"Police in Edinburgh responded to the Scottish Parliament at around 11.35 a.m. ... following the discovery of a suspicious package," police said in a statement.
Known as Holyrood, the parliament building is located at the bottom of the Royal Mile, Edinburgh's most famous thoroughfare which leads down from its historic castle to Queen Elizabeth's Edinburgh residence, Holyrood Palace.
