NEW YORK (AP) — Part of New York City's John F. Kennedy Airport has been evacuated due to a suspicious bag.

Steve Coleman of the Port Authority, which runs the airport, says the bag was left in the business class lounge at the American Airlines Terminal 8 around 7:40 a.m. Monday.

Terminal 8 was shut down as a precaution. The rest of the airport is still open.
