HOUSTON – A ruptured, smoking suitcase removed from an arriving international flight is being examined by fire crews and bomb specialists at Houston’s busiest airport.
Assistant Fire Chief Jack Williams says luggage was being taken off a KLM flight from Amsterdam on Tuesday when a baggage handler at George Bush Intercontinental Airport found a suitcase that appeared to have ruptured with smoke coming from it.

Williams says there was no explosion and no injuries.
