BERLIN (Reuters) - German police said on Wednesday they had given the all-clear after employees of the Canadian embassy in Berlin evacuated their building because they had received a bomb threat.

The Canadian embassy alerted police of the threat at around 9 a.m. (0700 GMT) but police determined it was not to be taken seriously and employees then re-entered the building, a police spokesman said.

He added that police had not ordered the embassy to be evacuated.

No one at the embassy was immediately available to comment.
