Police evacuated the Rehovot train station in central Israel  Wednesday after reports that a suspicious object was found on the premises.

Police and bomb squad personnel scanned the area and after about an hour gave the "all clear."

A gag order has been placed on the case, but it was reported that an object suspected of being a bomb was found in a bag belonging to an Arab-Israeli citizen.

Train service throughout the area was halted as a result of the bomb scare.
