NEW YORK: New York police evacuated part of Times Square on Friday to investigate a suspicious package a week almost after a car bomb was discovered in the area.
"We're responding to a suspicious package," a spokesman for the New York Police Department (NYPD) told a foreign news agency.
"We will be taking all necessary precautions."
On May 1 police found a large, but malfunctioning car bomb in Times Square, sparking a 53-hour manhunt that ended with the arrest of Pakistani-born US citizen Faisal Shahzad.
