Israeli police are investigating a suspicious package found at the U.S. Embassy in Tel Aviv on Saturday.

The package, which looked like a purse, was lying across the street from the back door of the building.

A police bomb disposal crew arrived on the scene and picked up the handbag after rummaging through it and drove away.

Embassy security had cordoned off the area for 50 yards but have allowed traffic to flow again.
