Swedish airport reopens after short evacuation (Updated)

Skavsta airport

An airport near Stockholm was evacuated and departing flights suspended for several hours on Sunday after staff found a suspicious powder in a bag that had been checked in for a flight, officials said.

Police later said no explosive traces had been found and Skavsta airport was reopened. The airport, Sweden’s fifth largest, mainly handles low-cost airlines.

Skavsta is about 100 km (60 miles) south of Stockholm.
