Suspicious “white powder” delivered to Israeli Embassy

Speaking of balanced reporting, did anyone hear that the Israeli embassy in Canberra was closed during the week, after a letter containing a white powder was delivered?

It turns out it was a hoax, however it does highlight the absence of security checks on parcel delivered to such institutions within Australia, as the Israeli embassy is not the only embassy in Canberra to receive such a letter, in recent times.

I also note the complete lack of coverage of this incident, within the local “general media”.
