Basel Mulhouse Airport Alert

Great excitement at the airport in Dreiländereck

Security forces had to evacuate part of the Basel-Mulhouse-Freiburg Airport on Tuesday afternoon. An unknown man had penetrated the controls there and thus triggered the use of the gendarmerie and military.

The security personnel had been looking throughout the affected terminal for about an hour and finally found the suspect. This is confirmed by the airport management on baden.fm. The background of the incident is still unclear, the suspect was being questioned.

Around 900 waiting passengers had to leave the area of ​​the airport and from the entrance hall again through the security controls per police orders. Eyewitnesses report that the deployment had been comparatively quiet and no real panic among the travelers. The situation was quickly under control, it is said.

The evacuation of the terminal could also be lifted after a short time. Five flights continued after the incident with a delay of one hour, a connection to Munich was apparently canceled.

Sounds like he just went through the wrong door, tripped the alarm, and everything kicked off until they found him!

Re: Basel Mulhouse Airport Alert

People feel so safe on a Swiss airport (even if it's only half Swiss) that all they twitter when the army crawls all over:

<< Something funny going on in #basel airport. Not allowed up to security area and army everywhere.

Imagine the outcry - not to mention the new terrorist-thread on EF - if this would have happened anywhere else. Where is the British/American sensation mongering? We're not treated fairly
