Bomb Scare, Monkey Pox Quarantine at Two Midwest Airports

"Passengers aboard a Chicago-bound flight from Detroit were reportedly kept from disembarking for three hours because a female passenger was suspected to have monkeypox" ("Mom's monkeypox mix-up caused by bedbugs and concerned grandma, son says").

And,

"Officials say a suspicious bag that prompted a brief evacuation of a Minneapolis airport terminal had two capped PVC pipes and several wires inside that the owner says were for water filtration. The Humphrey terminal was cleared of several hundred people around 5:30 this morning. Airport spokesman says there is no reason to doubt the man's story. He was released and won't be criminally charged" ("Bomb Scare Leads To Evacuation At MSP").
