The entire Bundesplatz was closed on Tuesday evening for security reasons, as the Bern canton police announced at around 6:15 p.m. on Twitter. This is because a suspicious item was found. The Bundesgasse was also closed for this reason. First the “Blick” reported about it.

After the police had the item checked by specialists, they gave the all-clear around 7:30 p.m.: The item had turned out to be harmless. There was no danger to the population, as the police write on Twitter.

However, the police did not say what the item was. Due to the police presence, various bus and tram lines had to be diverted, as the city of Bern’s public transport company Bernmobil announced on Twitter. (dpo)
