Suspicious package prompts evacuations at Atlanta airport
ATLANTA (AP) — Officials at Atlanta’s airport — the world’s busiest — say authorities evacuated public areas of the domestic terminal while police investigated a suspicious package.
The airport said in a statement Wednesday morning on its official Twitter account that the evacuation is being done “out of an abundance of caution.”
Airport officials and police could not immediately be reached by phone.
Within 15 minutes, airport officials tweeted that the package was cleared and people were allowed to travel throughout the airport again.
