Empty detonator containers found on plane in Miami

MIAMI (Reuters) - Police found empty containers for explosives detonators on Monday in the belly of an American Airlines passenger plane at Miami's international airport, triggering a security alert.

Fire crews and police surrounded the plane, which arrived from Brazil, Edna Hernandez, a spokeswoman for the Miami-Dade Police Department, told Reuters.

"The containers are empty. There were no explosives, no detonators, nothing inside them," Hernandez said.

It was not immediately clear if the containers were found in cargo aboard the plane or in a passenger's suitcase.

The incident was the second in recent weeks at Miami's airport.

Late last month, authorities arrested a man traveling with ammunition parts in a suitcase. The man's luggage contained hundreds of bullet primers -- a key component of bullet cartridges.
