Seattle terminal evacuated

The Port of Seattle set up a perimeter of nearly a kilometre around one of its terminals Wednesday after bomb-sniffing dogs indicated two containers from Pakistan could contain explosives.

Dozens of non-essential personnel were evacuated from Terminal 18, on Harbor Island south of downtown Seattle, a Port of Seattle spokesman said. A bomb squad used explosive charges to cut into the containers, which may have detonated any explosives inside. The squad was examining the contents.
