U.S. Capitol locked down for 2nd time in 2 days after reports of suspicious package

The U.S. Capitol was placed on lockdown for the second time in two days after a suspicious package was being investigated, according to Fox News.

There appeared to be more police officers than usual at some posts outside the buildings as the Capitol and its surrounding buildings resumed business Tuesday.

Even so, the reopening was marred as police investigated a pair of suspicious packages at the Capitol's East Front and Library of Congress Jefferson Building. By mid-morning, both packages had been declared harmless and road closures just outside those buildings were lifted.
