Visitors in Barcelona are breathing a sigh of relief after a bomb scare at an iconic cathedral turns out to be a “false alarm.”
Authorities locked down and evacuated the area around a the city’s Sagrada Familia cathedral citing an anti-terrorism operation.
Officers from the local bomb squad are on the scene and are reportedly investigating a suspicious package inside a van parked nearby.
Armed officers were seen patrolling the area.
The landmark Roman Catholic church was the target of a terror attack last month, which killed 13 people and injured 130 others.
