Security alert in Belfast 'a hoax'
Army bomb disposal experts called to examine a suspicious object in Rosebery Gardens in east Belfast, have said it was a hoax.
Earlier, an alert forced the evacuation of a number of houses in north Belfast.
It began after a suspicious object was discovered at North Queen Street. The road has now reopened. It is not known yet if it was a hoax.
A separate bomb alert in Newtownabbey, County Antrim, has also ended.
Army bomb disposal experts examined a suspicious object on the Shore Road and declared it to be "nothing untoward".
