LAX flights delayed by security breach

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Authorities say a security breach that delayed some 15 morning flights at Los Angeles International Airport has been resolved.

United, Continental and other flights were delayed for about two hours.

Transportation Security Administration spokeswoman Suzanne Trevino (Treh-VEEN'-yoh) says the breach occurred around 5 a.m. when a man whose carry-on was selected for secondary screening took the bag before it could be physically checked.

Security screening at terminals 5, 6 and 7 was halted until the man could be located, forcing hundreds of people to wait inside and on the sidewalk.

Trevino says the man was located on a United plane and returned to the terminal. His bag was checked, nothing dangerous was found and the incident ended at 6:48 a.m.
