MSP's Humphrey Terminal evacuated due to suspicious package

Posted:

MINNEAPOLIS (KTTC/KARE) -- Parts of the Humphrey Terminal at MSP International Airport were evacuated Friday morning after the discovery of a suspicious package.

An airport spokesperson says it happened at terminal 2. A passenger was apparently trying to get through security with a package when security stopped them for some reason.

A few moments later that package was found left unattended and the decision was made to evacuate the ticketing lobby of terminal two while a bomb squad was called in.

One witness says the evacuation is creating problems at the airport. He says traffic backups triggered by the incident are so bad that people are getting out of vehicles and walking with luggage in an effort not to miss their flights.
