Canadian Consulate in Istanbul evacuated after suspicious powder found. Letters sent 2 Canadian/German/Belgian consulates have 'yellow substance
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.

This article states that the US consulate got it also.


Envelopes containing unidentified yellow powder were sent to the United States and Canadian consulates in Istanbul on Friday, as well as several other diplomatic offices, officials said. The German and Belgian consulates in the Turkish city also received the suspicious packages and several people from the Canadian and Belgian missions were hospitalized. "The person has been decontaminated as a precaution and there is no reason to believe that the were chemical or biological agents in the powder," AFAD Spokesman Doğan Eşkinat told NBC News, referring to a Canadian staff member taken to hospital. Joren Vandeweyer, spokesman with the Belgian Foreign Office, said two members of Belgian staff were hospitalized but were showing no symptoms.
