Hi Everyone,

A friend of mine works across from the DFAT building in Canberra. He's just told me that the building has been evacuated and armed cops are running around outside.

Will post more when I find out more details.

Haven't got any links as this is just happening now.

Hopefully, this is a false alarm!

"Department of Foreign Affairs"

Hmmm.

Anything to do with Iran?

Thanks for letting us know. I also hope it's just a false alarm, Australia is such a lovely country.

Hopefully it's nothing serious... but being safe is always better than being sorry.

Yeah, let's hope so!

I'm sure that it has a lot of people over there on edge right now.

After what's just happened in Sydney, it's understandable.

Ditto ill bet everyone there is on edge aswell, especially given the timing! I hope it is just a false alarm from being over cautious after yesterday & this morning's events in Sydney.

We don't need anymore drama in our awesome country.

My friend was just told that they have to get comfortable as they are all going to be there for a while.

Will keep updating as I find out more.

Thank you for the info, Cruff. I hope this is all just a precaution and nothing more.

Yeah, i'm hoping it is all fine. Apparently, the cops aren't running around outside any more. They are just scouring the grounds around the building now.

Looks like it must've been a false alarm. My friend's building has been cleared to leave now.

Glad that it was nothing sinister.
