Oakland police evacuate downtown residents due to ‘possible incendiary device’

Police in Oakland, California have evacuated residents from a large area downtown after finding a “possible incendiary device”.

The Oakland Police Department said on Wednesday it had closed off a 15-block area around City Hall, with bomb disposal experts from the county sheriff’s department on the scene.

Helicopters could be heard overhead throughout the city, which neighbours San Francisco and is part of the 10-million strong San Francisco Bay Area.
