American, Spanish and Swedish embassies in Israel receive letters containing suspicious powder

JERUSALEM (AP) — Israeli police say envelopes containing a suspicious white powder have been discovered at the American, Spanish and Swedish embassies in Tel Aviv.

Police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said workers at the three embassies alerted police after opening the envelopes Tuesday.

Rosenfeld said it is still unclear what the substance is. But he said police have said the substance was not poisonous since no one was hurt.

Police are trying to find who sent the envelopes and determine whether the incidents were connected.
