MIAMI - An American Airlines passenger jet was being searched by police on Tuesday after a suspicious item was noticed during a flight from Paris, a spokeswoman for Miami International Airport said.

The 217 passengers and 14 crew members traveling from Paris to Miami aboard the Boeing 777 had all been removed from the plane and were on buses at around 5 p.m. EST (2200 GMT) on Tuesday, spokeswoman Suzy Trutie said. The flight arrived at 3:35 p.m. EST (2035 GMT).
