A sniffer dog, used by Hong Kong Disneyland to detect suspicious goods, sparked a false alarm yesterday that caused part of the public transport interchange at the park's entrance to be shut down for nearly 21/2 hours. Police and fire officers were called at about 10am when the dog checked a rubbish bin and gave a positive indication. Police found a bottle containing detergent, but nothing dangerous.
