Wolf cries heard in Miami

A bomb squad detonated a package at the port of Miami on Monday, after it tested positive for plastic explosives. But officials now say it only contained sprinkler parts.

Petty Officer James Judge said that the package was tested six times and each time it came back positive for C4, a plastic explosive commonly used by the military.

Officials then called in the Miami-Dade County police bomb squad, who decided it was safe to contain and detonate the package.

But officials now say the package was harmless and contained sprinkler parts. It was supposed to be loaded on a cruise ship.
The incident happened just one day after three men were arrested at the port of Miami over terrorism concerns.

But officials searching the men found only automotive parts and a judge dismissed all charges.
