Los Angeles International Airport was under a security alert today after a man told officials he was carrying explosives, officials said.

Roads leading to the airport's Tom Bradley International Terminal were closed as bomb squads inspected an unattended bag near a ticket counter, the Transportation Security Administration said.

The TSA statement said a man had been arrested and that a perimeter had been established where the bag was found out of "an abundance of caution."

The Bradley terminal was not evacuated and airport officials said flights were not immediately affected.
