Christchurch, New Zealand - The New Zealand military detonated two unattended bags near an Auckland railway station Friday, as the country was put on high alert following a deadly terror attack on two mosques.
"A short time ago Defence Force personnel carried out a controlled explosion of the bags as a precautionary measure," police said in a statement.
"Police can confirm the bags were not suspicious and contained scaffolding equipment."
