APIA SAMOA – MONDAY 29 APRIL 2019: Two Australian Federal Police experts have been called in to investigate a parcel found by Customs Officers at a mail depot at Salelologa, Savai’i this evening.

Sources told Talamua that two other local police officers who were trained overseas in handling explosives are traveling to Savai’i tomorrow to check the contents of the parcel.

Sources say nothing is confirmed at this stage, but the police were alerted when one of the Customs officers suspected the mail because of what appears to be a picture of a grenade on the outside of the package.

The police in Savai’i have sealed off the area and traffic has been diverted to use another road for public safety.

Police have yet to release details from their investigation.
