Paperweight Grenades Cause Evacuation of NY Airport

NEW YORK (AP) _ JetBlue has reopened its terminal at New York's Kennedy airport following a brief evacuation due to a suspicious package.

JetBlue spokeswoman Alison Eshelman says the package held replica WWII grenades that were used as paperweights. Scanners spotted them in a passenger's luggage, and the terminal was emptied around 7:50 a.m. Monday. It reopened at about 8:15 a.m.

The spokeswoman did not say how many people were in the terminal at the time.
