German Police Step Up Presence at Christmas Markets After Potsdam Bomb Alarm

German Police Step Up Presence at Christmas Markets
 The incident triggered a mass evacuation and raised concerns over possible terror attacks in the country.
German police are increasing their presence at Christmas markets following a bomb alarm on Friday when a suspicious package was found in Potsdam's downtown neighborhood, Deutsche Welle reported.

The package that was revealed to contain a metal cylinder, powder, nails and a large firework was deemed by the German police as "dangerous" and disposed of in a controlled explosion.

According to a police spokesperson, there was no detonator inside, which led the police to assume that it might have been a fake bomb.

"No explosives were found," the spokesperson said, cited by Deutsche Welle.
