US Capitol Police say a suspicious vehicle near the Capitol building and the Library of Congress is being investigated for possible explosives, and that people were told to leave the area.

“The USCP is responding to a suspicious vehicle near the Library of Congress,” the US Capitol Police says on its Twitter feed. “This is an active bomb threat investigation.”

Both the Senate and House of Representatives are currently on recess, but staffers are working in the Capitol complex.
