What was the reason for the emergency evacuation of the Scottish Parliament?

30
From Scotland, there are reports of increased levels of terrorist threat. The local press reports the urgent evacuation of all deputies and other members of the Scottish Parliament. The reason for the evacuation was the receipt by several MPs of envelopes containing white powder. Speech about four envelopes.


The substance, according to the police department, was sent for examination to a special laboratory. Experts figured out whether the contents of the envelopes are anthrax spores or another deadly disease.

Information Service "BBC" names the Scottish parliamentarians who received strange messages. These are Elizabeth Smith, Jamie Halkro-Johnston, Edward Mountain and Donald Cameron.

What was the reason for the emergency evacuation of the Scottish Parliament?


After the examination it turned out that the substance in the envelopes did not pose a danger to the health and life of the deputies. However, the Scottish authorities believe that the increased level of the terrorist threat is premature to be removed, since “the attackers could thus try to divert the attention of law enforcement agencies.”

Approximately three hours after the discovery of envelopes with white powder, the work of the Scottish Parliament was resumed. Announced that the envelopes were invitations to celebrate the 200 anniversary of one of the local newspapers.

    Who will they write to, in Russian? To the Siberians? Or maybe the hackers caught courage again, they decided not to limit themselves to computer viruses?

          It is stated that the envelopes contained invitations to celebrate the 200th anniversary of one of the local newspapers.

          Well, in addition to the invitation, they poured “powder” so that they would not bring their own, what is incomprehensible here? laughing

            This is if you are not too keen on, and so normal, such a self-assuming nonsense. It’s just strange, why not in Holland, where white powder is allowed by law. laughing

    receipt by several members of parliament of envelopes in which there was a white powder.

    When you thought I was sleeping, but I saw something, my friend
    How did you pour some white powder into my soup
    What a strange taste, it gets dark in my eyes
    And you said: Ok, see you in heaven
    I understand - this is a hint, I catch everything on the fly
    But it is not clear that ...
    What did you mean
    What did you mean
