Police give 'all-clear' to shopping centre near US Pentagon

WASHINGTON (REUTERS) - Arlington County Police said in a tweet on Friday they gave the "all-clear" to a shopping centre near the headquarters of the US Defence Department, with business returning to normal and roads re-opening, after bomb-sniffing dogs had inspected the area.

The stores had been evacuated and roads closed after an anonymous bomb threat was made on Friday afternoon to the center near the Pentagon in Arlington, Virginia.
