NEW YORK - The bomb squad of the New York Police Department
says a suspicious cooler in Times Square is not a threat.

Streets have been reopened to traffic.

Earlier, police closed the area off while they investigated a suspicious package near New York City's Time Square.

Police say the bomb squad responded to the area near 46th Street and Broadway to examine what appeared to be a small, white cooler left on a sidewalk.

Several streets were closed as a precaution because the cooler was found a few blocks from where a smoking SUV and failed car bomb was found Saturday night.
