Police and military authorities dispatched bomb disposal technicians and sniffer dogs to the site and searched for signs of explosives, closing off the surrounding area.

What was reported as a dynamite turned out to be a toy.

“The toy looks similar to a dynamite on the outside, but we have confirmed the same toy could be bought online,” an official from police said.
