Bomb joke brings scare for Nordic passengers

Police officers order “everybody out!” of CPH terminal
Two men were arrested at Copenhagen Airport yesterday afternoon for joking about a bomb, leading to the evacuation of Terminal 3 and travel delays. The men had been overheard discussing a bomb in one of their bags.
Buses full of police officers wearing bulletproof vests swooped on the terminal shouting “Everybody get out!” Naturally this was followed by panic. After 90 minutes, the police lifted the alarm.
“There was overheard talk about a bomb. The suitcase was searched. There were no bombs,” the police wrote on social media.
Delays continued during the day. The two men, whose identities and nationalities were not disclosed, explained to police officers that the comments about a bomb were said as a joke.
