Authorities have given the all-clear sign here. They've torn down the police tape and tourists and federal employees are now walking the streets.

The vehicle in question –- a U-Haul moving van –- is still parked in the same place, right in front of the U.S. Department of Education on Maryland Avenue in Southwest D.C.

The backdoor is wide open and a few Metropolitan Police officers and federal officers are still surrounding the vehicle. One person who works in the area says he saw officers carrying two duffle bags out, but that could not be confirmed by the authorities.
