A car was rammed into the airport entrance and it went up in flames.
It looks some sort of halfhearted terrorist suicide bombing:unsure:

Scary to have it this close to home though... one of my best mates works at the airport and I knew a few people who were arriving there today.

Thank God no one got seriously injured

a similar, yet milder version of that happened in Phoenix when I lived there.

someone drove a truck through the security fence at Sky Harbor Airport and was arrested shortly after.

although it caused some panic at first, the general consensus after the police investigation was that it was not the work of al qa'eda but just some local tweakers.

Thomas Conroy, a maintenance worker at the airport believes the men deliberately tried to set the car on fire.

"It looked like they had Molotov cocktails with them," he said.

"They sort of burst them round about the flames to make sure the car would go up big style.
