Minneapolis Airport terminal evacuated after suspicious bag found

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Authorities say one of the terminals at the Minneapolis-St. Paul airport has been evacuated after a suspicious bag was found in the baggage screening area.

Police tell local media a bomb squad has been called to check a suspicious package found in the airport's Humphrey terminal Friday morning. Travelers who have not gone through security have been taken out of the terminal and those already through security are being asked to stay at their gates.

It's not immediately clear if all flights have been grounded.

Calls from The Associated Press to the airport, the Transportation Security Administration and the Federal Aviation Administration weren't immediately returned.
