LAX bomb threat causes traffic nightmare
A bomb threat at Los Angeles International Airport caused major traffic problems at the airport.
Law enforcement sources said officials were searching Terminal 2 after someone called in a threat that bombs had been placed in that terminal and on a plane.
LAX officials have blocked off a portion of the roadway around the airport, and traffic was jammed.
"At approximately 2:05 p.m., Los Angeles Airport Police responded to a report of a telephonic bomb threat," Sgt. Belinda Nettles said. The Federal Bureau of Investigation is investigating. The Los Angeles Police Bomb Squad and Los Angeles Fire Department are on the scene.
No other information was immediately available.
