WASHINGTON (AP) — The FBI says a bomb threat prompted flights to be temporarily halted at Washington's Reagan National Airport.

The FBI says a flight from Dayton, Ohio, was isolated Sunday afternoon. The 44 passengers are being interviewed. FBI bomb experts are also sweeping the plane. The FBI says the threat was made at the ticket counter at the Dayton Airport, and that person is in custody. The plane was closer to Reagan National at the time the threat was received, so it was allowed to proceed to Washington.

A spokeswoman for the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority says flights were halted for about 20 minutes after the flight landed about 1 p.m., but U.S. Airways flights may be delayed because the flight is parked in an area used by the airline.
