STATE : Bomb Scare Clears S.F. City Hall

From Times staff and wire service reports

Hundreds of office workers were evacuated from City Hall today after authorities found an unattended briefcase they thought might contain a bomb.

The municipal workers were allowed to return about 45 minutes later, however, when a police bomb squad blew the briefcase open and discovered that it contained a harmless dictation machine.
