Man held after Brisbane Airport evacuated over bomb scare

Feb 03, 2019 13:59 IST

One of Australia's busiest airports was locked down after a man brandished a knife and made a bomb threat at a food court. Police described the emergency that forced the evacuation for more than two hours as elaborate and terrifying. The incident happened when the man who falsely claimed to have a bomb menaced a woman with a knife at the airport late Saturday. Police ended the standoff by shooting the 50-year-old man with non-lethal bean bag shotgun rounds and arresting him.
