Security delays over at NJ airport after Sunday scare

NEWARK, N.J. (WKOW) -- Security lines for passengers at Newark Liberty International Airport in New Jersey are back to normal after a scare Sunday.

Around 5:30 p.m. a man walked through a screening checkpoint exit to enter a terminal, setting off major delays as passengers were escorted out of the terminal and rescreened.

The man was never found and flights were grounded for six hours.

An airport spokesman says as of 7:00 a.m. Monday, all lines were moving normally.

Over the weekend, the Transportation Security Administration announced passengers flying to the U.S. from nations regarded as state sponsors of terrorism and countries of interest would be subject to enhanced screening.
