      San Francisco's Union Square Evacuated

      San Francisco's Union Square, a plaza popular with tourists that is surrounded by upscale shops, was evacuated on Thursday after a suspicious package was found.

      The square and a one-block area around it were evacuated after a call reporting the suspicious package was received at 11:50 a.m. local time. The evacuation was lifted after less than two hours when the police bomb squad took the package into evidence.
