There are reports of explosions at the terminal at LA Int'l airport. Airport has been shut down and authorities believe there was a security breach.  All outgoing flights have been canceled and all incoming flights have been diverted.

CNN is reporting that it was corroded batteries inside the flashlight.  Story is here:

Earlier on scene reports had indicated that some of those who were in the immediate area of the explosive batteries sustained very minor injuries.  Thank goodness this was not something more serious. It looks like our security systems are working.
