April 22 (UPI) --
Travelers can breathe a little easier -- and with minty fresh breath -- after a bomb scare at JFK airport was found to be a false alarm.
Airport officials at New York's John F. Kennedy International Airport evacuated Terminal 4, Concourse B, around 4 p.m. Sunday after a suspicious package was discovered in the bag room of El Al Airlines.
The New York Police Department bomb squad gave the all-clear around 5:30, after the unattended package was cleared and identified as a tube of toothpaste, wrapped in duct tape and wires.
Last week, high tension over the Boston bombings saw several airports evacuated, including Miami International, New York's LaGuardia and Boston Logan.
