LA airport evacuated after bomb threat


Los Angeles International Airport's Terminal 7 was evacuated this week after receiving a bomb threat, The Associated Press reported

The LAX terminal was closed for an hour on Thursday morning after a passenger said he had a bomb in his luggage, but it reopened after officials discovered no explosive device, according to the report.

LAX’s Terminal 3 was site of a shooting in November of last year that resulted in the death of a Transportation Security Administration (TSA) official. 

The airport has been under scrutiny for its response to emergency situations after a report about its handling of the November 2013 shooting found responders took too long to reach the scene of the incident.
