A suspicious jar placed under the sink of a women's washroom was noticed by a McDonald's employee at around 3:30 a.m. He immediately notified police.
A police unit arrived on the scene and had a bomb disposal team remove the suspicious device. The area surrounding the fast-food restaurant was blocked off to traffic until 6 a.m. after the bomb had been safely defused, causing a 30-minute delay for trams.
Police told the press that the bomb had been taken to a crime laboratory for further investigation and added that footage from security cameras on and near the premises of the McDonald's would be reviewed in order to identify who placed the bomb.
