Two suspicious parcels received by the Presidential Office on Friday turned out not to contain explosives or items that were potentially harmful to people, police said.
After opening the packages, the Criminal Investigation Bureau's bomb squad said they contained a petition letter, a recorder and battery. No harmful items were found.
The Presidential Office said earlier Friday that an X-ray check showed that the two parcels received through the mail at 10 a.m. contained batteries, electric wires and circuit boards, and there also appeared to be metallic objects.
It turned the parcels over to the Criminal Investigation Bureau after the suspicious items were identified, according to standard security procedures.
