Germany: Delays hit Munich airport following security breach

Germany, Munich
August 27, 2019 at 11:30 GMT +00:00 · Published

Terminal 2 and parts of Terminal 1 of Munich Airport were closed and people evacuated following a reported security breach before the facility was re-opened, Tuesday.

Footage shows crowds of people waiting at the airport, as up to 5,000 passengers were reportedly affected by the operation with numerous flights being delayed or cancelled.

"Everybody is standing, everything is closed, completely, no idea what happened and it will probably last half a day," said Alexander, a passenger.

The closure was ordered after a person reportedly used the emergency exit to enter the 'clean area' of the airport, instead of going through the passport control.

According to media reports, the person who breached the security was detained.
