For the second time in two days, a dry ice device exploded at Los Angeles International Airport, or LAX.

City News Service reported that the explosion occurred at about 8:30 p.m. in the Tom Bradley International Terminal. KCAL 9 reported that this explosion, like the one last night, occurred in a restricted area - a place where passangers could not enter. Both news organizations reported that the bomb squad was on the scene.

"No one was injured and the initial indications are that it was not a terrorist act," City News Service said.

KCAL 9 reported that traffic appeared to be flowing normally and no flights were delayed.
