A Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport ticketing area reopened Saturday after being evacuated for about two hours when an unattended bag tested positive for explosives.
Officials ordered the brief evacuation of the Terminal 1 ticketing area around 12:30 p.m.
“A portion of T1 ticketing evacuated. Airlines affected: American, US Airways, Spirit, Frontier, United. Contact airline for flight status,” the airport’s Metropolitan Airport Commission said on Twitter
A short time later the airport reported “an unattended bag tested positive for explosives near the United ticket counter.”
KSTP-TV said the bag was swabbed for explosives and registered positive in a preliminary test.
