This just came across my Fox News feed via Twitter:
A man was detained Tuesday at Orlando International Airport carrying materials in his luggage that could have been used for an explosive device, the FBI said on Tuesday.
Jamaican national Kevin Brown, 32, planned to board Air Jamaica flight 80 to Jamaica, until he was questioned by airport authorities, the FBI said in a statement.
A subsequent search of Browns checked baggage by airport authorities revealed two galvanized pipes, end caps, two small containers containing BBs, batteries, two containers with an unknown liquid, laptop, and bomb making literature, according to the FBI.
According to MyFOXOrlando.com, several ticket counters in the area were closed and a portion of the terminal roped off while members of the bomb squad searched the Brown’s bags. He was taken into custody and turned over to the FBI.
That is some hard-core equipment. There really isn’t any doubt what this guy had planned. What is in question is what the target was:
Mica would not go so far as do call the incident a terrorist act. He did however say that it was very disturbing.
â€œFrom what I understand,â€ Mica said. â€œAnd what was described, if itâ€™s confirmed, this posed a very serious threat to aviation security.â€
