NEWARK - Terminal A at Newark Liberty International Airport has reopened after a computer monitor caused a precautionary shutdown.

FBI Special Agent Bryan Travers says the monitor normally emits small amounts of radiation and there was no imminent threat.

Travers says the monitor is being shipped to the same destination as its owner, who was already in flight when it was found.

Terminal A, which is home to American Airlines at the airport, was shut down during this morning's investigation for nearly two hours, according to the Transportation Security Administration (TSA).

An American Airlines spokesman says the package was found behind the ticket counter at a security checkpoint where checked bags are screened.
