No Explosives on Sydney Girl

Seems it was a false alarm. After a scary seven-hour standoff, Sydney police freed a teenage girl who had been strapped to what was thought to be a bomb, now confirmed to contain no explosives. An intruder reportedly broke into the 18-year-old's home in an affluent suburb and fitted her with the package. There are also reports that he left a ransom note for her father, a wealthy businessman.
