evacuations

In this image issued on Wednesday Nov. 7, 2018 by the Catalan regional police, the Mossos d'Esquadra, a security scanner image shows a suspicious object found in a suitcase of a female rail passenger in Barcelona, Spain.

An official with Spain's National Police said the alert was ended after agents in Madrid confirmed that the suspicious object in the suitcase of a female passenger who had traveled on a high-speed train from Barcelona didn't pose any danger.
