The evacuation of Germany's Frankfurt Airport was triggered by a person entering the security area before completing the security check, the airport administration said Wednesday.
"Today at Frankfurt Airport a passenger entered the security area before the security check had been completed," the airport said on Twitter. German federal police cleared departure hall A as a preventative measure and passengers will be rechecked.
