(Newser) – About 700 people were evacuated from a Deutsche Bank office in Germany today after white powder was found in a letter at the building, Reuters reports. Forty bank employees who may have had contact with the powder are undergoing health checks. The Schkeuditz building was used for back-office operations, and a local paper says today's incident may have something to do with an ongoing wage dispute there.
