Man with explosives detained at Texas airport

MIDLAND, Texas - December 31, 2011

City of Midland spokeswoman Tasa Watts said Saturday she had no information on the suspect, who was taken into custody by the FBI. An FBI spokesman did not immediately return a phone call from The Associated Press.

Watts says the explosives were found as the man was going into a terminal at Midland International Airport.

She says the incident happened shortly before 9:30 a.m. Saturday. A sweep was done and the airport terminal was cleared, and normal operations have resumed.
