S Africa’s main airport evacuated in bomb scare

AFP

JOHANNESBURG: Johannesburg’s O.R. Tambo airport, Africa’s largest, was evacuated yesterday and passengers forced to wait for two hours to return after South African officials identified a suspect bag, reports AFP.

Images of the deserted terminal were posted to social media while other photographs showed crowds of passengers waiting on roadways for the all-clear to return inside.

The airport’s international arrivals hall was evacuated around 0915 GMT after the errant baggage was spotted and airport users were unable to re-enter until after 1115 GMT, airport spokeswoman Leigh Gunkel-Keuler told AFP.

“To ensure the safety of passengers and customers in the airport terminal building, people were evacuated from the area,” she added in a statement. “(The police service) has now provided airport management with the assurance that passengers and customers can now return to the airport terminal building.”
