MIAMI — A concourse at Miami International Airport has been reopened after the discovery of a suspicious package.

Airport spokesman Marc Henderson says authorities investigated the package and determined it was not a threat.

All passengers in the airport's J concourse were evacuated at about 3:05 p.m. today. Ten flights were unable to depart and two incoming flights were diverted to other gates.

The package was found outside the gate of a Caribbean Air flight.
