Copenhagen: Police close part of airport over 'odd size luggage'

Danish police have reopened one of the main terminals at Copenhagen airport, after it was evacuated earlier in the morning. Would-be passengers have been told to still expect delays at Scandinavia's busiest airport.

Danish police on Tuesday had closed parts of one of the main terminals at Copenhagen's international airport, citing a suspicious-looking package.

"The police have now completed the operation at CPH (Copenhagen airport) and closures at Terminal 2 have been lifted," airport officials wrote on Twitter. Copenhagen police, meanwhile, said they were still investigating the incident.

Earlier on Tuesday morning, authorities had evacuated Terminal 2 due to a piece of "odd size luggage." The terminal was closed off for around two hours.
