Berlin: German authorities say they temporarily shut down parts of Munich airport because a woman entered a security zone without going through the security and passport controls.

Munich federal police said in a tweet they shut down parts of terminal two this morning and are still looking for the woman, but did not give further details.

The closure led to flight delays, cancelations and long lines in front of the security checks.

Most of terminal two were opened after a few hours; only the international flight section remained closed as police continued looking for the unidentified woman.

School vacation started in Bavaria yesterday leading to extra busy traffic at the airport this weekend.
