There was great commotion in Luxembourg City between Place Guillaume II and the Grand Ducal Palace just before 3pm on Wednesday with police arriving en-mass
According to information obtained by wort.lu from the police, at 2:40pm bomb threats located atvarious points were announced by an unknown caller on “Place Guillaume II with explosives hidden near the bank, at the post office building, at the main station and in the underground Aldringen Centre”.
The bomb threats sparked a major police operation. Wort.lu reporters and several readers at the scene state that many armed police in protective clothing were performing searches. A canine unit with dogs specialised in bomb detection was also at the scene.
The traffic in the City which is particularly dense around the Place Guillaume II, almost came to a complete standstill and many streets blocked, although this area now seems to be open to traffic again.
At the time of writing this update (4:30pm) the station area is still blocked off.
If you are travelling through the City expect disruption for at least the next few hours.
