Emergency personnel are responding to incidents involving suspected “hazardous materials” at numerous foreign consulates in Melbourne and Canberra, Australia on Tuesday.

International consulates in Melbourne and Canberra, including the US, UK, Germany, Italy, Korea, and Russia are believed to be affected, according to Australian news agencies 10 Daily and 9 News. Authorities have issued at least 17 “hazardous material” warnings related to the incident.

Preliminary, unverified reports said the packages contained the words “asbestos” and “wear a mask,” according to News.com.au.

“The circumstances surrounding the incidents are being investigated,” the Australian Federal Police said in a statement.

On Tuesday, local time, a package containing “suspicious” material found at the Consulate of Argentina contained no toxins, according to an Australian Fire and Rescue spokesperson.
