MIAMI – Federal officials say a passenger has been taken into custody after screeners detected something suspicious in a checked bag at Miami International Airport.
A statement by the Transportation Security Administration says its investigators, a Miami-Dade police bomb squad and other law enforcement agencies were on the scene.
The federal statement says four of the six Miami airport termianals had been evacuated and airport roadways also were closed as a safety precaution.
The statement does not give further details about what a TSA screener found at about 9 p.m. Thursday.
Authorites say the evacuation continued early Friday and urge anyone with departures from Miami to check with their carrier.
