Warsaw airport evacuated
Domestic terminal and part of the main international departures hall had to be vacated on Monday morning when a suspicious looking motorcycle was spotted in front of the airport building. The preliminary x-ray showed wires and boxes inside the bike's trunk. However, later it was discovered that the trunk didn't contain anything dangerous. The airport could resume its regular service with delays on some international departures. The owner of the motorcycle can be fined with a parking ticket and the airport authorities can sue him for costs associated with the evacuation.
I couldn't find any information, however, on the delays and a few hour evacuation on the aiport's English version website. Passengers were really cooperative, they just wish they were put somewhere else than in the direct sunlight for a few hours.
