Barcelona: Explosives experts checking van near Sagrada Familia cathedral

Several blocks around the iconic Sagrada Familia church in Barcelona have been sealed off by the police, who have also shut down the nearby metro station, in what they say is an anti-terrorist operation.

Specialist bomb disposal experts have been sent to the area, reportedly to investigate a suspicious package inside a van parked close to the church.

"It is a false alarm". No arrests were made, the police said on Twitter.
