New York airport evacuated due to false alarm

According to US media, an unidentified phone caller said there was a bomb in the airport and at the same time someone else reported an unattended bag, which sparked the alert and led to the evacuation.

The incident occurred at around 6:00 pm yesterday. A few hours later the Port Authority said hazardous materials experts and police have checked the bag and it was not a bomb. It also said passengers would soon be allowed back into the terminal.
