Hundreds Evacuated From Airport Over Suspicious Piece Of Luggage

LONG BEACH, Calif. (AP) _ A suspicious piece of luggage prompted the evacuation of a terminal at Long Beach Airport on Thursday, authorities said.

The luggage was discovered by federal Transportation Security Administration workers at about 9:30 a.m., city police spokeswoman Kathy Parsons said. She had no further information.

Several hundred people were ordered to evacuate, and firefighters, police and a bomb squad were called to the airport, about 25 miles south of downtown Los Angeles.

Airport spokeswoman Maricela de Rivera said inbound flights were landing but being held on the tarmac, while outbound flights had been delayed or canceled.
