(Newser) – Anchorage's Ted Stevens International Airport is back open and one man is in custody this morning after a bomb scare yielded little other than an evacuation, reports the AP. Apparently a man traveling with two other men referred to a bomb in a checked bag early today, triggering a fruitless search and the evacuation of the airport's south terminal. The FBI and the TSA have been called in to investigate.
