Canberra, Australia - Australian police launched a criminal investigation after the U.S., Israeli and British embassies were sent packages containing white powder, forcing evacuation of the Israeli and American missions.

“We are treating all three as linked until we can prove otherwise, given they were received on the same day, and a crime scene has been declared,” a police spokesman said.
Tests on all three powder packages found they were harmless, police later said.

The Israeli mission, was the first to receive a powder package, followed by the U.S. embassy nearby. The British mission was not evacuated after powder was received there. [Reuters]
