No explosive devices were found and the suspicious item, which had been placed in a waste bin, was blown up with a controlled explosion.

The interior ministry informed that the suspicious luggage contained latex, daily Dnevnik reports.

This is the latest of a series of false bomb threats and signals for suspicious items, which have intensified in the past weeks.
