  • Police close the streets around a Christmas market after a suspicious object was found in Potsdam eastern Germany Friday Dec. 1 2017

There were no injuries reported in the evacuation or demolition of the package, which authorities said did not appear to include a fuse or other parts for a detonation.

Armed police are on the scene in Potsdam, Germany, after the suspected device was found by police.

Visitors were evacuated Friday from a Christmas market in Potsdam, Germany so that a bomb squad could detonate a suspicious package discovered near the popular attraction.

According to the Potsdamer Latest News, the package, measuring 40 x 50 inches, was delivered to a pharmacy and found by an employee.

He told reporters that several hundred grams of nails had been found in a metal cylinder inside the package, but added: "We just don't know at this point if this was a device that could have actually exploded, or a fake, or a test".

Germany is on high alert for militant attacks, almost a year after a Tunisian Islamist rammed a hijacked truck into a Christmas market in central Berlin, killing 11 people as well as the driver.

Past year on December 19, suspect Anis Amri of Tunisia drove a hijacked truck through crowds of people killing 11 and injuring dozens, Deutsche Welle reported.

Security has been stepped up at all markets across Germany ahead of that anniversary, and the looming first Advent weekend.
