A SECURITY ALERT at the Israeli Embassy in Dublin has ended following an earlier report of a suspicious package at the premises.

An army bomb disposal unit was dispatched to the scene earlier today to examine the object. The incident has since been confirmed as a false alarm.

The embassy building, Carrisbrook House on Ballsbridge’s Northumberland Road, was evacuated while the package was examined, but the alert has ended and the Defence Forces team has left the scene.
