There was a false radiation alarm at Stockholm's Arlanda airport last weekend.
On the evening of 6 October, an alarm for radioactivity was sounded for a parcel, but one and a half hours later it had been clarified that it was a false alarm.
According to Royne Kack of the Arlanda police it is very rare that something like this happens, reported aftonbladet.se, the online edition of a Swedish newspaper. The parcel had arrived at Arlanda's terminal for international mail from Israel and was held when the alarm was sounded during a routine check.
