“All special services were immediately informed, and the airport is undergoing a space check and situation assessment. While the common areas are being checked and the information is being assessed, passengers have been evacuated from the common areas of the arrival and departure terminals,” LTOU said.

Around 100 people were reportedly evacuated.
