Seoul (South Korea), Nov.12 (ANI): A gift of a box of fruit from an elderly South Korean man to US President Barack Obama's daughter sparked a full-scale security alert at the G-20 summit in Seoul, local media reported.
Yonhap news agency said staff at a post office in Seoul alerted authorities to the gift addressed to Obama's younger daughter, Sasha.
X-rays showed about 15 round objects that looked like fruit. Still not convinced, the staff called in a SWAT team and a sniffer dog, but the parcel was later found to contain Asian pears, Yonhap said.
The gift was returned to its 70-something-year-old sender in the southern port city of Busan the same day, The Telegraph reports. (ANI)
