LANSERIA - A bomb scare has led to the evacuation of all passengers and staff at the Lanseria Airport, west of Johannesburg on Saturday.
An eye witness said flights going in and out of the airport have been delayed after a bag suspect to be loaded with a bomb was found abandoned.
Planes expected to land at the airport have been given an alternative landing area.
Dudu Qubu, who was at the airport, said a bomb squad has arrived at the airport.
“As we were waiting, we were told that is a bomb scare as someone has left a bag attended since 1pm.”
Police are on their way to the scene to investigate.
