Police Find More Dry Ice Bombs at Los Angeles Airport

Kevork Djansezian/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) -- For the second night in a row, police were called to Los Angeles International Airport on Monday to deal with suspicious devices.

Shortly after 8 p.m. Monday, officials received a report of a suspicious item in a restricted area of the Tom Bradley International Terminal.  Upon investigation, police officers discovered three plastic bottles filled with dry ice.

One of the three bottles exploded but no one was injured.  The two others were made safe by the Los Angeles Police Department's bomb squad.

Police tell ABC News they do not believe these devices are linked to terrorism.

Monday's incident comes after one of these so-called dry ice bombs exploded in an employee bathroom in Terminal 2 on Sunday evening.  No injuries were reported in that incident either.
