Rothschild Bank head office evacuated over suspect package
thinkSPAIN , Tuesday, November 10, 2015

A SUSPECT package sent to the Rothschild Bank in Madrid has forced emergency services to evacuate the building.

Chemical experts from the Guardia Civil, the TEDAX team, are analysing two envelopes delivered to the bank's head office on Madrid's main business boulevard, the Paseo de la Castellana, after they were found to contain white powder.

Four people in the office who have been in contact with the packages, plus the fire brigade, SAMUR ambulance paramedics and TEDAX officials have been taken to isolation units and examined in case of possible contamination.

Traffic has been cut off in one lane of the Paseo, a dual carriageway, and the fourth floor of the block evacuated.

Details of the sender and any specific recipients have not been released.

This is not the first time a financial entity has received a suspect package, although to date they have all turned out to be hoaxes.

Envelopes of white powder were addressed to 'the manager' at the Banco Santander headquarters in Boadilla del Monte (Madrid) in early October, but investigations revealed the package contents were talcum powder.
