Police ordered the emergency evacuation of Dublin International Airport on Tuesday after a man claiming to have a bomb in a suitcase was arrested in the airport's arrivals hall. Ireland's national police force, the Garda Siochana, said several of its units and the Irish army bomb squad were being dispatched to the airport, which is about 10 miles north of central Dublin, but no explosive device was immediately found. Siobhan Moore, spokeswoman for the Dublin Airport Authority, said all travelers and staff had been evacuated from the airport terminal to nearby car-parking spaces or to the sidewalks outside, while all flights out of the airport would be grounded until the bomb threat was resolved.
