Security concerns also led officials to close parts of the airport in Kansas City, Missouri, on Sunday for hours and question a passenger after screeners at a checkpoint raised suspicions about the contents of a bag.

Two F-16 fighter jets escorted an American Airlines flight to a safe landing in New York after a report of suspicious activity on the flight from Los Angeles.

The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) said it was notified of passengers allegedly behaving suspiciously on American Airlines Flight 34 from Los Angeles International Airport to New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport.
