The Israeli embassy in Dublin was evacuated on Tuesday after a suspicious device was found, but it turned out to be a false alarm.

The army's bomb-disposal team had been sent to the scene to investigate the security alert.

Irish police said the eight-storey building, which is mostly empty apart from the embassy, was partly evacuated while the bomb-disposal team investigated the device for around an hour.

A police officer at the scene, off Dublin's Pembroke Road, told Reuters that it was a false alarm after the team left the building.

Israel's Foreign Ministry said work in the embassy had returned to normal.

"A package attracted the attention of the staff and it was inspected but turned out that it was nothing out of the ordinary," a spokeswoman in Jerusalem said
