A reported on Tuesday bomb threat in Spain's fourth-tallest skyscraper, The Torre Espacio, which hosts embassies of the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia and the Netherlands, turned out to be a false alarm, the police stated.
This comes after earlier in the day, Reuters reported citing police spokeswoman that the edifice located at the Paseo de la Castellana was evacuated due to a suspected bomb. The National Police has urged anyone who was inside or in the vicinity of the building to follow the instructions of the security staff.
