The international terminal at San Francisco International Airport was evacuated after a bomb was reported.

Police said the international passenger terminal at San Francisco International Airport was evacuated Friday night after a bomb was reported.

The San Francisco Police Department said on its Twitter account that the police received a report about a planted bomb and found a “suspicious package.”

“The international terminal has been evacuated and the explosives disposal unit is investigating,” the statement warned of possible flight delays, “as it could disrupt ongoing airport operations.”

The airport authorities confirmed that “due to ongoing police activities, the international terminal is being evacuated”, urging people to avoid visiting the international terminal until further notice.

The airport, which surpassed three million passengers in 2020, has indicated that pickup and drop-off services are only available at its domestic stations in 2020, according to the latest data.
