Sunat headquarters in downtown Lima were evacuated on Tuesday morning, after a bomb threat was called in, El Comercio reported.

Employees at Sunat – the nation’s tax agency – were asked to leave the building while police searched the building.

The bomb threat also forced police to close traffic on block 14 of Garcilaso de la Vega Ave.

UDEX, the country’s bomb disposal unit, said it had not found explosives after searching the entire building and parking lot, and allowed employees to return to work.

According to El Comercio, Tuesday’s incident was the third bomb threat hoax in September, so far.

>Earlier in the month, false >bomb threats were made to the Municipality of La Molina, and the Municipality of Villa el Salvador.

>Furthermore, the country’s >Ministry of Education headquarters in San Borja were evacuated in August, after an unidentified man warned of a bomb on the premises.
