Man with explosives detained at Texas airport
MIDLAND, Texas (AP) - An official in Texas says a man has been detained after entering an airport in Midland with explosives in military-grade wrapping.
The man was stopped at a security checkpoint at the Midland International Airport about 9 a.m. Saturday and taken into custody by the FBI.
An FBI spokesman declined to say whether the man was in military uniform, or how many explosives were found in the bag.
The Transportation Security Administration says one of its officers spotted a suspicious item in a carry-on bag during X-ray screening.
The checkpoint was closed for about an hour while officers investigated and removed the item.
