MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- Police have given the all-clear after a bomb squad checked
out an unattended bag found at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport.


The airport said in a tweet that police determined the bag did not contain
anything hazardous, and that all areas of the airport were now open.

Part of the airport mall at Terminal 1 was cleared and shut down Wednesday
afternoon while police investigated the bag.

Airport spokesman Pat Hogan says the bag was left unattended at a restaurant
beyond the security gates. Hogan said flights were not affected.
