    Terminal B at New York's LaGuardia Airport was reopened after an evacuation was prompted by an abandoned car, local media said Friday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — LaGuardia Airport's Terminal B was evacuated late on Thursday after an unattended vehicle was found near the building.

    The car was seen being towed away by the police, with a Port Authority Police Department spokesperson stating that it was "cleared without incident," the television channel NBC New York reported.

    ​A police investigation into the incident caused long delays for both arriving and departing passengers, with reported heavy police and bomb squad activity at the site.

    ​New York remains tense after one bomb exploded in Seaside Park, New Jersey and another one in the city's Chelsea neighborhood on Saturday. No one was hurt in Seaside Park, but the Chelsea blast injured 29 people. On Monday morning, a third device that had been found near a train station in Elizabeth, New Jersey exploded when a bomb squad tried to defuse it.
