WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The main building of the Library of Congress was evacuated on Wednesday morning after a "suspicious odor" was detected and two people felt faint, Capitol police said.

Nearby buildings, including the U.S. Capitol and the Supreme Court, were not affected.

The main Jefferson Building was evacuated shortly before 10 a.m. (1500 GMT) and the odor was being investigated. One person who felt faint was treated on the scene and the other was taken to a local hospital for further examination, according to a U.S. Capitol police spokeswoman.
