Sri Lanka’s peace broker Norway shut its embassy in Colombo Thursday after the diplomatic mission received a package containing a white powder suspected to be anthrax, police said. Investigators were called to the embassy compound after the mission received an envelope containing the substance, a police spokesman said.

Norwegian diplomats said the embassy was closed after the discovery. The embassy had previously received a similar package which turned out to be a hoax.

The latest scare came as Oslo’s top peace envoy to Sri Lanka, Erik Solheim, was visiting the island in another bid to try to salvage a faltering peace process between the government and separatist Tamil rebels.

The US embassy here closed in August for a week after a similar scare which also turned out to be a prank. (AFP)
