All Clear after Bomb Squad Checks Suspicious Bag at JFK Airport

Jupiterimages/Thinkstock(NEW YORK) -- Police evacuated a terminal at New York's John F. Kennedy International Airport on Monday as a bomb squad inspected a bag left inside an American Airlines business class lounge.

The contents of the bag were deemed harmless and the terminal was reopened shortly thereafter. Suspicion arose after a last-minute passenger left it behind and boarded a flight bound for San Francisco.

Police said they had no indication that the passenger evaded security.
