Suspicious package found behind national assembly

A wide security perimeter has been set up behind the national assembly because of a suspicious package left on a sidewalk. 

The package appears to be a black case.

National assembly security personnel have taken a person into custody, although it is unclear whether that is connected to the suspicious object.

More to come.
