From the CNN website:
Security incidents close LAX

(CNN) -- Los Angeles International Airport was closed Saturday after two separate security incidents, an airport spokesman said.
In one incident, airport police were responding to reports of a "suspicious person."
The other involved a flashlight with corroded batteries that exploded in Tom Bradley International Terminal.
Seven people were hurt by that explosion.
The Department of Homeland Security had a different account.
The agency said that an explosive detection system machine got a positive reading from a corroded battery in a flashlight.
DHS reported that it was not aware of any explosion or injuries.
The area was evacuated as a precaution.
A LAPD bomb squad remains on the scene.
