New York City's Times Square reopened Wednesday to traffic after a bomb squad found no explosive devices in an abandoned van parked in the area. The squad used a robot-based camera to approach the vehicle and open it. Police said they found clothing inside. The area around 42nd Street between Seventh Avenue and Broadway was briefly blocked off as a precaution, and two high-rise buildings home to Nasdaq and Conde Nast were partially evacuated. The van had tinted windows, and a placard from a nonexistent law enforcement agency was on the dashboard. It had no license plates, but a temporary registration was found inside the van and officers are trying to locate the owner. Police officers on patrol noticed the van around mid-morning Wednesday. Security is tight as the New Year approaches.
