BRUSSELS - US diplomatic staff returned to their embassy in Brussels on Wednesday after a brief evacuation caused by the discovery of a suspicious vehicle nearby, a US official said.

Hundreds of US diplomats and staff at the Belgium Defense Ministry were evacuated for around 45 minutes after police discovered a minivan with suspect number plates and protruding wires. After inspection by a bomb squad, the vehicle was declared safe and staff were allowed to return to work."The situation is all clear, everyone is back," a US embassy official said.
