Australia: Man arrested over suspicious parcels sent to embassies

Australia: Man arrested over suspicious parcels sent to embassies

DFAT said in a statement it had warned all diplomatic missions in Australia to be tired of opening mail on January 8, after learning that suspicious packages were sent to three embassies and consulates in Canberra and Sydney on January 7.

The ABC and Fairfax Media report that the packages contained cement and broken tiles in regular envelopes, with some packages including a note reading "asbestos".

Police did not put forward a motive for Avan's alleged actions.

Mr Avan did not apply for bail.

The arrest came hours after consulates in Melbourne were forced into lockdown having received suspicious packages in the mail.

They identified all the intended recipients and were working to recover the remaining packages, but said there was no ongoing risk to the public.

Police said they had so far recovered 29 of the 38 packages and were undertaking forensic testing to determine what they were carrying. Victoria police said they believed the incidents were targeted and did not impact the general community.
