Man with explosives stopped at Texas airport
Source: Reuters (Jim Forsyth)

A man found to be carrying explosives in "military grade wrapping" was detained at a western Texas airport on Saturday, forcing the evacuation of the area, officials said.

No details were immediately available about the man or why he had the explosives, which Watts said were "wrapped in military grade wrapping."
