Australian police are investigating suspicious packages found at foreign consulates and embassies in Melbourne and Canberra.
Melbourne's Metropolitan Fire Brigade said it had been called to "a number of incidents" across the city.
Consulates of the UK, Switzerland, the US and Pakistan are among those evacuated there.
Some of the packages were reported to contain what appeared to be concrete, and were labelled asbestos.
There were no reports of harm to any staff.
