The passengers at the airport were threatened when a man brandished a knife and made a bomb threat at a food joint.
The state said they found a “suspicious device” when they responded to reports of the 50-year-old man, who spoke Arabic and threatening a woman. The police said the man was charged with domestic violence offences, alleged claims to destroy the country’s aviation facility and making a hoax bomb threat.
According to the photograph released by the police, the device looked like a small, black safe with wires sticking out of it.
The terminal was reopened at about two hours after the Sunday’s incident while the man who had since being dumped in custody, would appear in Court on Monday.
