On Tuesday lunchtime, a bag was discovered beside a Jersey barrier along the East Cross taxiway at Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport. In order to ensure aircraft safety, the Aviation Police Bureau (APB) sent out bomb disposal personnel to investigate. Fortunately, it turned out to be a false alarm: There was nothing in the bag apart from a car battery.


The APB said that it was notified of the incident at noon and, as the bag was on ground close to flight routes it decided, in the interests of caution, to immediately dispatch a bomb disposal team from the security inspection section to deal with the matter.


A preliminary investigation by the bomb disposal team revealed that there was nothing in the bag but a car battery, and so the possibility of an explosion could be ruled out. The car battery was retrieved, and a further investigation will be conducted to clarify whether a member of the airport staff had made a careless mistake and accidentally left the bag near the taxiway.
