A “suspicious package” closed the Army post office on Cambrai-Fritsch Casern in Darmstadt, Germany, on Wednesday afternoon for about 90 minutes while security and bomb disposal experts investigated.

The post office and adjacent community mail room were closed from about 2 p.m. to 3:30 p.m.

A base spokeswoman said a German team of bomb disposal experts came to the casern and cleared the post office to re-open.

The spokeswoman said force-protection measures prevented discussing what caused the package to be considered suspicious.
