A local newspaper in southwestern Sweden notified the police of a suspicious package on their doorstep this morning, but later when the police's bomb unit destroyed the package it turned out to be a box of herbs, Swedish Radio News reports.

The staff at the newspaper Norra Halland was evacuated and the area around the building was cordoned off by police. The package was destroyed around lunch time.
