JFK terminal being evacuated after security breach

NEW YORK — A terminal at John F. Kennedy International Airport was evacuated Saturday after someone opened a door to a secure area and set off an alarm, officials said.

The security breach apparently involved someone who left a first class American Airlines lounge at Kennedy’s Terminal 8, opened a door that was supposed to be used only by airport workers and walked through. Officials said it was unclear whether the person was a passenger. The breach, which happened before 3:30 p.m., was recorded by security cameras, he said.
