NEW YORK– Police say a major lower Manhattan subway station has been evacuated as they investigate two suspicious packages.

Police are at the Fulton Street station investigating the packages found at the line that carries No. 2 and 3 trains. Authorities were called around 7 a.m. Friday.

There are no reports of injuries.

New York Police Department Counterterrorism tweeted an update Friday morning saying that the devices were cleared and were not explosive devices.

The station is a busy transit hub a few blocks from the World Trade Center.

In 2017, a would-be suicide attacker set off a homemade pipe bomb in an underground passageway at the Times Square subway station during rush hour, seriously injuring himself.
