Bag of dynamite destroyed by police

A bag containing dynamite was discovered in Länsmansgården, in the Hisingen area of Gothenburg, on Wednesday morning, according to news agency TT. 

Police have destroyed its contents, however Björ Blixter, spokesperson for the Gothenburg police, says the explosives had not likely been live.

Around six in the morning, a bomb threat was called in alerting 112 that there was a bomb there. Several apartments in the area were evacuated, and car traffic had to keep from coming within a 100 meter radius of the bag.
