Police in Santiago de Chile have evacuated the embassy of Israel, after it received an envelope with a white powder inside.

Police have said the substance is not explosive, and turned the envelope over to the Metropolitan Health Service Authority for analysis. The young courier who delivered the envelope, Diego Droguett (28) has been detained, and is being questioned by authorities.

Alejandro Quintanilla, an embassy janitor said “It was an american envelope, like an invitation. It was evident to me that the person that brought [in the envelope] has a psychiatric problem, I thought he was a foreigner, so I called security.”
