BERLIN - A suspicious package sent to German President Joachim Gauck's office on Friday and destroyed by police did not contain explosives, federal investigators said.

Earlier, a spokesman for Gauck said police had carried out a controlled explosion of the package, in a park next to the presidential palace in central Berlin.

Federal investigators said their tests had shown there were no explosives, despite the earlier suspicions of the bomb disposal experts.
