An all-clear has been given at Reagan National Airport after authorities investigated a suspicious piece of luggage as a precaution late Monday afternoon.
A bomb squad responded to the scene at Terminal B, where a checked bag had required followup checks, the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority (MWAA) said. Police have investigated and cleared the bag, MWAA said around 5:10 p.m.
There were no reports of delays and the terminal was not evacuated.
Police closed off a small area of the airport on the ticketing level during the investigation, but said airport operations were continuing normally.
