Bremen airport temporarily shut down due to security breach

Bremen airport has been temporarily shut down due to a security breach, a federal police spokesman said on Wednesday.

The spokesman said that the specific threat could not be determined at this time, but added that a number of sniffer dogs had been deployed.

The breach forced 55 passengers en route to Paris and 71 passengers en route to Amsterdam to disembark their respective planes, the spokesman said.

He added that there were unlikely to be cancellations as a result, but that eight flights would be subject to delays.

The incident comes a day after a false security alarm at Frankfurt airport caused 60 flights to be cancelled. Some 13,000 passengers were affected by the incident.
