A new report is criticizing authorities in Detroit, Michigan for mishandling an explosive device found outside a Detroit federal building.
FOX News Radio's Courtney Kealy reports:
'The Detroit News' publishing details of the report by the U.S. Homeland Security Department which faults the hiring, training, practices and oversight of the security guards at the McNamara Federal Building where the explosive device was found.
The device was in a tool bag with explosive components and went unidentified for three weeks. The report says the device posed a high safety risk even though it didn't explode.
Three of the security guards were fired, five were suspended and one resigned.
The U.S. Homeland Security Department has since issued standardized national guidance on how to deal with unattended suspicious packages.
