Police evacuate about 500 people from Sweden’s security agency over suspected gas leak

STOCKHOLM (AP) — A suspected gas leak at the headquarters of Sweden’s security agency Friday forced authorities to evacuate some 500 people from the facility, Swedish broadcaster TV4 said. 

Seven people from the headquarters in Solna, just north of Stockholm, were hospitalized, police spokesperson Anders Bryngelsson told the TT news agency. He said there were no reports that anyone was seriously injured.

Emergency services had decided to evacuate the entire building because of a “suspected gas leak,” Bryngelsson said. He did not elaborate.
