Amtrak Train Searched in Jacksonville, But was False Alarm

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) - Several passengers were questioned on
an Amtrak train in Jacksonville, but officials are calling it a false alarm.

Operations are back to normal at the station after a train heading from Miami to New York was stopped for hours as authorities questioned a group of passenger.

Reports say those on board contacted authorities about several passengers that were acting strangely, looking through their bags and moving from car to car.

The group was questioned but later released. The cars were even searched by a bomb squad and dogs.

The train left Jacksonville just after two this morning.
