: "WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Baggage screeners found bomb components in a carry-on piece of luggage at San Diego International Airport on Tuesday and cleared the area to investigate, Department of Homeland Security spokesmen said.
A department spokesman said the screeners found 'all components of an IED' (improvised explosive device) in a piece of luggage at around 7:45 a.m. (10:45 a.m. EDT)
They then evacuated the commuter terminal of the airport and bomb specialists began to investigate, the spokesman said.
Transportation Security Administration spokesman Nico Melendez said an employee noticed a 'suspicious item' in a piece of luggage as it was going through the X-ray machine."
