There was pandemonium at the OR Tambo International Airport as passengers and airport officials were evacuated as a precaution after a discovery of an unattended bag.
Earlier today the South African Police Service were called onto the scene after airport security discovered an unattended bag at one of the terminals, and as a result the whole airport was evacuated causing delays on some of the operations at the airport.

Operations however resumed a few hours later but there has not been any word yet from the police on what the contents of the bag were.
OR Tambo Airport spokesperson said passengers can expect very minimal flight disruptions but could not elaborate on how long the flight delays could be.
