TEHRAN (Iran News) – A bomb squad was called in to investigate an suspicious bag found in the street during a pro-Trump rally outside Walter Reed military hospital in Bethesda, Maryland, where the US president is being treated for COVID-19.
Police cordoned off the area and shut down a section of Rockville Pike, diverting traffic and pushing Trump supporters away, after the suspicious bag was discovered in the area near the entrance to the medical facility on Saturday night.
The Montgomery County Bomb Squad responded to the incident, with a sniffer dog seen investigating the backpack in multiple videos shared by witnesses online.
The backpack was returned to the owner, who claimed he left it at the crosswalk by accident, according to local reporters at the scene.
Hundreds of people have been rallying outside the Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Bethesda since Donald Trump was flown to the presidential suite inside the facility with “mild” symptoms of COVID-19.
