Bush’s plans were not affected by the threats because he was not scheduled to use the highway and was flying into a different airport. Police said a telephone caller claiming to represent Irish Republican Army dissidents warned that a bomb was in the terminal at Belfast City Airport, in east Belfast.

Police declared the threat a hoax after finding nothing suspicious, and both the road and airport reopened. Full Story
