Copenhagen Airport Terminal Evacuated Overnight

Danish police have arrested two men at Copenhagen's Kastrup Airport after they were overheard discussing a bomb in one of their bags, prompting the evacuation of the terminal.

Terminal 3 was evacuated at around 12pm local time on Wednesday after police were notified of the conversation. The terminal was reopened several hours later.

"They said that they were only joking with each other," police spokesman Steen Hansen told AFP.

"Apparently, they are friends, though one was going to Paris and the other was flying to Frankfurt (Germany)," he said.

The identity and nationality of the men was not disclosed.

The incident came just hours after Danish police raised the country's threat level by one notch to the second-highest level, citing the elevated risk of a terrorist attack after last week's Paris attacks.
