Suspicious package found near London headquarters of Cambridge Analytica

LONDON (Reuters) – British police said a suspicious package had been found near the London headquarters of Cambridge Analytica on Thursday, prompting police to close nearby roads and evacuate the building.

“The building has been evacuated as a precaution,” police said. “No injuries have been reported.”

The London-based political consultancy has been at the center of a storm this week after a whistleblower said the company had paid an academic to harvest the data of 50 million Facebook users to build profiles of American voters before the 2016 U.S. election.
