Man makes bomb threat, police evacuate parts of Frankfurt airport

A 37-year-old man caused a partial evacuation of Germany's Frankurt Airport on Saturday evening after telling police that he had explosives in his baggage.

The incident saw part of the airport's Terminal 1, as well as a connecting area to a high-speed train station, cleared for 90 minutes, police said in a statement.

Federal police arrested the man and investigated his baggage, which contained computer parts and a gas canister.

The man, who currently is forbidden from leaving Germany as he is suspected of fleeing the scene of a traffic offence, is already known to police, the statement said.

He has reportedly been involved in similar incidents in the past and is now being admitted to a psychiatric clinic.

Travellers were in no danger at any time during the incident, police said.
