Bomb Squad Sent to Twin Cities Airport For Unattended Bag
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — A suspicious bag that tested positive for explosives prompted a partial evacuation of Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport.
Officials say the bag was discovered unattended on a baggage carousel at Terminal 1 about 4 a.m. Thursday. Airport spokeswoman Melissa Scovronski says the baggage claim level was evacuated and lower level roadway was shut down for about two hours.
Bomb experts were called in from Bloomington and found the bag's contents were not dangerous.
