Heavy police presence at Reagan National Airport (KDCA) for 'flagged' bag

The Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority says that TSA has 'flagged' a bag at Reagan National Airport. 

An all-clear has been given at Reagan National Airport after authorities investigated a suspicious piece of luggage as a precaution late Monday afternoon.

A bomb squad responded to the scene at Terminal B, where a checked bag had required followup checks, the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority (MWAA) said. Police have investigated and cleared the bag, MWAA said around 5:10 p.m.

There were no reports of delays and the terminal was not evacuated.

Police closed off a small area of the airport on the ticketing level during the investigation, but said airport operations were continuing normally.

Story and video:

TSA says an 'Explosive Ordinance Division' is at the scene investigating the bag.

MWAA says a small area has been cordoned off, but that this situation is not affecting any airport operations and all ticket counters remain open.
