The Prime Minister's Office in Jerusalem was briefly evacuated Wednesday, after a suspicious envelope which arrived at the office set off a bomb-scare, police said. The envelope, which had been examined by an x-ray machine, was later determined to be harmless by police sappers. Prime Minister Ehud Olmert was in Paris at the time of the late-morning incident.
