Original Message The Canadian Consulate in Istanbul was evacuated Friday after an unidentified yellow powder was found in a package delivered there.

Turkish authorities have begun an investigation, the CBC's Jeff Semple reported Friday morning.

"The Canadian, Belgian and German consulates in Istanbul have all been evacuated after all three received a suspicious package this morning, according to reports in the Turkish media," Semple said in London.

"The letter containing a yellow substance was examined in line with regular procedures," Turkey's disaster management agency, AFAD, said in a statement.

One consulate employee came directly into contact with the suspicious package, and six others had indirect exposure, the Turkish statement said.

Everyone working at the Canadian Consulate in Istanbul is safe and accounted for, Canada's Department of Foreign Affairs and International Trade said in a statement.
