Officials say a terminal at Alaska's main airport has been evacuated over a bomb scare.
The manager of Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport says the main terminal was cleared after a male passenger early Sunday referred to a bomb in a bag.
John Parrott says travellers were evacuated to another terminal, as authorities search the luggage. So far, no explosive has turned up.
He says the man who made the comment and two male companions are being interviewed by authorities. Anchorage was the point of departure for the three, but Parrott didn't have details on their destination.
Parrott says agents with FBI and Transportation Security Administration are taking part in the investigation.
Meanwhile, planes have been landing but Parrott says no passengers have been allowed to board any aircraft.
