Officials control explosion of suspicious package at Monaco


News from over night, that we all can hope goes down as just one of those things — but either way I figure we ought to be aware of here.

Officials had to explode, under controlled conditions, a suspect package discovered in the Monaco paddocks. The small plastic container was found to have electrical cables in it, according to various reports.

The managed explosion occurred while the paddock was mostly empty but parties were going on all around. The box was left near the media center around La Rascasse. A Red Bull hospitality station was “moored” nearby, according to one report I’ve seen.

Yeah, that’s Monaco.

Apparently, officials found a suspicious bag last year, as well, but they didn’t have to blow it up. That happened on Sunday before the race.

Just one of those things, we hope.
