Police temporarily closed streets around New York's Times Square at lunchtime on Wednesday but soon reopened the streets when a suspicious vehicle turned out to be harmless, Reuters reported.

A minivan left unattended with its lights on outside the Westin Hotel prompted the bomb scare, police stated.

After closing off several blocks and examining the vehicle, police reopened traffic, according to witnesses present at the time.
