BERLIN - Two German railway stations were evacuated Monday morning after unattended suitcases triggered a bomb scare.

No trains were allowed to enter or leave the stations at Goeppingen and Ravensburg in the southern state of Baden-Wuerttemberg while police examined the suspect luggage.

A police spokesman said nothing untoward was found in the suitcases and normal services were resumed after a two-hour delay.

Germans have been edgy about unattended luggage ever since suitcase bombs were found at two railway stations on July 31.

Two Lebanese nationals are in detention on suspicion of planting the bombs, which failed to go off because of a construction error.
