Baghdad Activists circulated on social media, today, Thursday, a picture of a man in a truck parked outside the US Library of Congress in the capital, Washington.
US media reported that the man who broadcast live on the Internet claimed the presence of an explosive device in his truck, and also threw banknotes in the street.
The White House announced earlier today that it is closely monitoring developments regarding the suspicious vehicle in the vicinity of Congress, and is receiving a briefing from the law enforcement forces in this regard.
Law enforcement officials said investigators are at the scene and are working to determine whether the explosive device was capable of detonation.
