TAIPEI,
Taiwan ~ (Reuters) ~ A suspicious package in a Taiwan subway station
bathroom touched off a bomb scare, but it turned out to be a forgotten
box of mooncakes.


Police in the southern Taiwanese city of Kaohsiung report that a
custodian cleaning a bethroom in a subway station found a package left
on top of a trash can. Part of the station, known for its stained glass
ceiling, was cordoned off and explosives experts were alerted. TV
coverage showed a police officer, wearing a fully-protective armored
suit, entering the bathroom while other officers waited outside the
entrance.


The officer later emerged carrying a bright blue box of mooncakes,
pastries with sweet fillings, traditionally eaten during the Mid Autumn
Festival. Local police chief Cheng Ming-chung said, "it was x-rayed
first to see what it was and whether there was any chemical or
electrical reaction. He added, "someone must have put it down to use the
toilet and forgotten it when they left,” saying police would continue
to investigate.
