BOSTON (Reuters) - A security scare at Boston's Logan International Airport was resolved on Tuesday when law enforcement authorities determined two suspicious packages in a cargo area were harmless.
The Delta Airlines cargo building, along with 25 staff, were evacuated in early afternoon after a Transportation Security Administration sniffer dog doing a routine security check indicated a suspicious scent on two duffel bags with Nigerian addresses.
Checks were made by the Massachusetts State Police bomb squad and by X-ray machines. "The bags were determined to be harmless," an airport spokesman said.
The suspicious bags were found in the Delta Airlines cargo area, located about a mile away from any passenger areas at the airport. Flights out of Logan were not disrupted.
Local media reported that state police determined the bags contained bedding material.
