Update: Suspicious package cleared

By Erica Johnston

Authorities have cleared the scene in Georgetown where they were investigating a suspicious package Wednesday evening in an alley near an office of the Saudi Arabian embassy.

D.C. police, Secret Service officers and D.C. Fire and Emergency Services hazmat units were called to the alley behind 1001 30th Street NW about 6:15 p.m., police and fire officials said. Authorities were investigating a small barrel that contained an unknown liquid, said Pete Piringer, a fire department spokesman.

Investigators did not say what was in the barrel. They described it only as a "brown liquid" that was not dangerous.

Aw how nice. We're always looking out for these Saudis. They should think about returning the favor and respect.
