Suspect in LAX Dry Ice Explosions: Thought It Was a "Funny Kind of Joke"

Maybe not laughing now


The man arrested in the dry ice explosions at Los Angeles International Airport is a baggage handler who thought the simple bombs were "a game" and "a funny kind of joke," police said Wednesday.

The explosions didn't cause any injuries, but one did cause a temporary shutdown of a terminal. Both explosions raise questions, however, about the airport's vulnerability and security, authorities say.
