No bombs found at LAX after phone threat

 Los Angeles International Airport

Officials swept two terminals at Los Angeles International Airport but found no bombs after someone called in a threat Tuesday.

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. Nothing was found, and officials said the operation was ending.

For a time, LAX officials blocked off a portion of the roadway around the airport, and traffic was jammed. Most of those closures were being lifted.
