ATLANTA – (WAOK/AJC)  –  Investigators say an unattended bag,  that appeared to have wires sticking from it,  caused the shutdown of Concourse ‘E’ at Atlanta’s Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport.  It all started around 4-30pm,  Wednesday,  when someone spotted the bag in the baggage claim area.   The terminal,  which handles international flights,   was partially evacuated,  and flights were delayed,  while security and a bomb squad was called in to investigate.  Airport officials say the bag was eventually re-united with its owner,   without incident,  but that flights could still take some time to get back on schedule.
