LAPD Investigates Dry-Ice Explosion at LAX

Flights out of Los Angeles International Airport's terminal two were halted Sunday as police investigated an apparent dry-ice bomb explosion, NBC Los Angeles reported.
Authorities described the "dry-ice bomb" as a plastic bottle with dry ice inside. It was discovered by an airport employee in an empty bathroom after the staffer heard the explosion from the tarmac. The Los Angeles Police Department's bomb squad investigated but did not made any immediate arrests.
No injuries were reported as a result of the explosion, which occurred about 7 p.m. near gate 27. Flights resumed just before 9 p.m.
In May, a dry-ice explosion also occurred near Disneyland's Toontown section, which was evacuated following the incident. Disneyland employee Christian Barnes, 22, was arrested following the incident and later pleaded not guilty.
