(Newser) – Russia has been tense since the Moscow airport bombing earlier this year, but a bomb squad in Petrozavodsk got something to laugh about yesterday. The city's main postal building was evacuated and surrounded by security forces after a worker reported a suspicious package with a ticking noise. The bomb squad was sent in, only to find a vibrator that had been turned on by accident, the Telegraph reports. A police spokesman says the sex toy will be returned to the post office and sent to its intended recipient.
