JFK terminal evacuated for suspicious package

JFK terminal evacuated for suspicious package

NEW YORK, June 7 (Reuters) - A terminal at New York's John F. Kennedy International Airport was briefly evacuated on Friday after a suspicious package was found in a men's bathroom, the latest in a series of airport incidents after the Sept. 11 hijacked airliner attacks on the United States.

Bomb sniffing dogs were called in, but the package was found to contain electrical circuit breakers. Passengers were given clearance to return to the area at 9:55 a.m. (1355 GMT), 18 minutes after the alarm was raised, said Pasquale DiFulco, a spokesman for the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, which oversees major airports in the New York area.
