All Flights Stopped at Cologne/Bonn Airport

Federal police have temporarily halted all planes at the Cologne/Bonn airport in western Germany. Officers are looking for a person who reportedly bypassed security checks.
The police on Monday confirmed earlier newspaper reports of a security scare at Cologne/Bonn airport. A police spokeswoman told the German DPA news agency that all flights had been stopped.
"Authorities had evacuated the airport's Terminal 1 and were examining everybody present there," she said.
The decision was taken after a person reportedly went around security checks.
All planes out on the tarmac were ordered to go back to their parking positions at the terminals. Passengers were ordered to stay inside the planes.
Cologne newspaper, Kolner Stadt-Anzeiger also reported on its website that Germany's Interior Ministry had set up a crisis panel to look into the matter.
