BREAKING: Swedish airport evacuated after ‘trace of EXPLOSIVES’ found in bag
A SWEDISH airport has been evacuated after a bag with “traces of explosives” was discovered in the departure hall.
By Vickiie Oliphant, The Express, May 22, 2017:
Police and emergency services rushed to the scene, blocking doors and other exits to prevent travellers from accessing the airport.
Those inside have also been evacuated and moved to a safe place while investigations continue.
Tommy Nyman, police spokesman, said: “We will also evacuate some people who have already checked in at the terminal.”
Mikael Andersson, station commander of the border police, added the “whole departure lounge” has been shut down by the police.
Passenger Viktor Ingemarsson, who is currently waiting for his pregnant girlfriend at the airport, said: “First there were two police cars and a while later, a full succession with police and fire brigade.
“They have barred from the first crossing point at home all the way away. They are currently removing people from the area.
“I’ll have to wait a while. The atmosphere is quite calm, but the police really want people to get away from here.
“It feels very worrying. It seems to be an object, maybe a bomb of some kind. I’ve heard from several policemen that it’s bomb threat.”
Other witnesses described the scene as “crawling” with police as the incident is dealt with.
It is believed the police have sealed off a 200m scene around the suspect bag, and are awaiting the arrival of a bomb squad to further examine the package.
Sweden was hit by terrorists last month when a truck attacker killed four people outside a busy shopping centre in Stockholm.
Rakhmat Akilov, a 39-year-old rejected asylum seeker, is known to have sympathies with terrorist death cult ISIS.
