Police shoot man in Brisbane Airport after bomb threat

Sydney -By Klaus Blume - Police shot a man in Brisbane Airport on Saturday after he made threats with a knife and appeared to be carrying a bomb, local media reported, an incident that police confirmed was not terrorism-related.

Queensland Police said that the airport in eastern Australia was evacuated and a man had been taken into custody. No one was injured in the incident, police said, making no reference to the suspect being shot.
The man went into the departure area holding a metal box with wires sticking out of it and said it was a bomb, The Courier Mail reported.
According to witnesses, he also tried to stab his ex-wife.
"There is no evidence to suggest the incident at the International Airport is terrorism related, it is a domestic violence related situation," Queensland Police said on Twitter.
The airport said it was hoping to resume a normal service as soon as possible.
