Federal police have stopped boarding at part of the airport’s Terminal 1 and were evacuating part of the security area.
A spokesman said they believe an unauthorised person with a child passed through the security area and disappeared. “We are still searching for them,” the spokesman said.
Passengers described scenes of “confusion” as they were evacuated from the terminal.
