WASHINGTON (AP) - The Rotunda of the U.S. Capitol is open again following a brief closure while police inspected a white powder found there.

Sgt. Kimberly Schnieder says no one was allowed into Congress's historic room while police tested the substance and determined that it posed no threat. They reopened the Rotunda around 11 a.m. EST Friday.
