MIAMI — Officials say Miami International Airport has returned to normal operations after a man claimed to have dynamite in his luggage.

Miami-Dade police say Concourse J was partially evacuated Monday afternoon, shortly after the luggage was flagged at a TACA Airlines ticket counter. Bomb squad officers searched the bag but found no explosives.

Police say the suspect was detained and later recanted his statement about having dynamite. His name wasn't immediately released.
