Germany says suspicious bag in Namibia airport was security test

Airport police in Namibia discovered a suitcase with batteries, wires, and a ticking clock. It was a security test, German police have discovered, though who planted the suspicious bag is unknown.

German authorities said an Air Berlin flight from Namibia was delayed Wednesday after police found a suspicious device in baggage in the luggage hall of the airport in the African country’s capital Wednesday.
