About 6,000 international passengers were stranded for as long as six hours at Los Angeles International Airport because a computer failure prevented them from passing through customs, authorities said. The passengers were stranded in four airport terminals and in 24 planes starting at about 1:30 p.m. Saturday because of a breakdown in the computer system. The system contains the names of arriving passengers and law enforcement data about them, including arrest warrants, said Los Angeles World Airports spokesman Paul Haney. Some of the computers were functioning again by 9:15 p.m., and authorities had begun slowly processing the huge backlog of passengers in order of their arrival.
