Mall bomb scare is just clothing

THE "bomb" that forced a shopping mall in Putuo District to seal its entrance yesterday was actually a parcel of clothing left by a careless shopper, police said.

A resident uploaded pictures on the popular forum about 1:30pm, saying he saw the main gate of the Bailian Commerce Plaza on Zhenguang Road being closed by guards. Another resident said workers told him that a suspicious parcel had been found on the second floor, and he saw the workers condoning off the floor. A bomb-disposal team was also seen patrolling the shopping mall.

Police said after a thorough check that the parcel had only contained clothing. The shopping mall resumed normal operations about 2pm.
