More evidence of jittery nerves in
the wake of last week's terror scare... after an Alaska Airlines
flight from Guadalajara, Mexico was evacuated Monday morning after
no one claimed a "suspicious item" found onboard the plane.
The unspecified item was discovered on the plane while it was
enroute to Los Angeles International Airport, and crewmembers
alarmed when no one claimed ownership of the item -- similar to an earlier incident involving a cell phone
on a British Airways flight.
"The flight attendant discovered an item and she said, 'Is this
yours?' And all the passengers said, 'No," airport spokesman Harold
Johnson told the Associated Press.
The plane landed without incident at LAX, where it was then
directed to a remote area of the airport. All 125 passengers and
crew onboard the Boeing 737 were then transported to the
Bomb-sniffing dogs were used to determine the suspicious item
did not contain any explosives.
"Passengers have been disembarked and carry-ons in the cabin
will be screened by canines," said TSA spokesman Nico Melendez.
