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.
