Detroit airport terminal evacuated

Washington, April 1 (IANS) A terminal at the Detroit Metropolitan Airport in the US was evacuated for about two hours Monday due to concerns over a suspicious device, CNN reported.

The north terminal — the smaller of the two at the airport — was cleared to reopen around 8.30 a.m., an airport spokesman said.

Screeners with the Transportation Security Administration noticed something suspicious in a passenger’s carry-on luggage, said spokesman Michael Conway.

Bomb experts looked into it, and in the meantime passengers in the terminal were moved “a safe distance away”, he said.

The passenger carrying the suspicious item was not under arrest but was detained.

The larger terminal continued its normal operations.

No details were given about the suspicious device.
