Florida, USA – A bomb scare occurred at the Miami International Airport (MIA) on Tuesday and delayed some flights, after a passenger with bullet parts inside his luggage was arrested by police authorities, according to US news sites.

FBI told the news that a 37-year old man boarding American Airlines whose identity was not revealed, was detained after bullet parts were discovered inside his bag, just minutes after the arrival of the flight, about 11:30 a.m at Gate D-17.

Apparently, the man who is a naturalized US citizen who came from Boston and then supposed to be going to Jamaica, have brought with him hundreds of bullet primer inside his luggage, which is a very hazardous material.

“The bag was being taken out by a baggage handler, he put it on the ground and something ignited and hit him in the shoe,” FBI spokesman Mark Leverock told the news.

“One of the primers ignited and then they all ignited,” he said, adding that the incident have caused no damage and injuries no anyone when a bomb squad checked the area.

Although the man was later charged for traveling in interstate commerce without a license to carry ammunition, FBI says they believe that the incident is not related to any terror act.

Meanwhile, airport spokesman Marc Henderson told the news that four flights were delayed while the investigation is being conducted.
