LOS ANGELES -- The discovery of an unattended suitcase Sunday led to the partial evacuation of a terminal at Los Angeles International Airport, bringing a temporary halt to an otherwise smooth day for holiday travelers.
Police cordoned off the lower level of the Tom Bradley International Terminal -- where friends and relatives greet arriving passengers -- for two hours early Sunday afternoon. A bomb squad was called to the scene, only to discover that the suitcase contained men's clothing, airport spokesman Harold Johnson said.
The bag was then sent to the airport's lost-and-found office.
Johnson said he did not know how many people were evacuated from the building, but he said incoming and outgoing flights were not affected.
