Any bets this is courtesy of the __________ of pieces.

The banner on FNC.com says Possible Security Breach - nothing about an explosion yet.

KABC in Los Angeles (or the local ABC affilliate) reported the explosion.

I'm so so sorry....

CNN now in on it as well. They too are reporting only some sort of security breach, no mention of an explosion.

MSNBC now says that a security breach ("popping noise") was reported by a baggage handler. Sounds like someones shaving cream can busted.

Talking head on CNN said a flashlight with corroded batteries exploded.

Still no further details.

L.A. Airport Shut Down; Possible Security Breach
Saturday, September 04, 2004

LOS ANGELES — Los Angeles International Airport (search) was shut down early Saturday because of a possible security breach and a separate incident at an international terminal security screening station, an airport spokesman said.

No information was immediately available on the incident at Tom Bradley International Terminal (search), airport spokesman Harold Johnson said.

Officials also did not explain the possible security breach that shut down terminals 6, 7 and 8. The terminals are connected.

Traffic was being diverted from the airport.

Just more irresponsible reporting to get the attention of viewers on an otherwise slow news day. Assholes!

These assclowns wouldn't know an explosion from a Taco Bell beef burrito generated fart.

Anyway, back to the Michigan vs. Miami of Ohio football game. I'll monitor this thread just in case.

Hey there sonny, you need to add some more of dat dar fiber to your diet. It flushes all those toxins right outta your system the first thing in the morning! Metamucil son, it's the key to regularity! Plus, it prevents you from being confused with a WMD while at airports!

Exploding flashlights? It MUST be a trap!
Link Posted: 9/4/2004 7:45:30 AM EST
Now they're saying a flashlight DID explode and hurt 7 people (!)

Does Maglite make a 30 cell version?!

A flashlight has long been one of the easiest devices in which to make a bomb or booby trap from. Just pack it with explosive compound and rig it to detonate. This was being done in Vietnam and un-telling how long before.

Not saying this is the case here, but flashlights can easily be made into bombs.

Fox is reporting that LAPD has confirmed that there has been an explosion at LAX and there are at least 7 people injured.
Link Posted: 9/6/2004 6:07:09 PM EST

Uh, what happened to this story? I haven't heard any more in a couple of days.

Link Posted: 9/6/2004 6:09:15 PM EST
I read it was a flashlight that exploded. I'd guess that the battery in a flashlight exploded. A short circuited battery could do this. Lithium cells can do this but NiCd is particularly susceptible, too.
