NEW YORK - A building opposite the United Nations headquarters in New York that houses the Saudi Arabia and Qatar missions to the world body was evacuated on Tuesday over a suspicious package.

A UN security official said the suspicious package was found in the Saudi Arabian UN mission.

"We were told to evacuate, a suspicious package ... It's just a matter of precaution I think," Saudi UN Ambassador Abdallah Al-Moallimi told Reuters.
