Reports have emerged of suspicious packages discovered in the domestic area of Sweden’s Landvetter airport.
The hall has been evacuated, according to local media.
The airport, near Gothenburg, received a bomb threat in the morning. As a result, police were placed in high visibility areas, a police spokesperson told local media.
A few hours later, a couple of “suspicious” plastic bags were found in the domestic hall. The hall was subsequently cordoned off, Adlersson said.
