The JetBlue terminal at New York's John F. Kennedy International Airport was evacuated today because of a suspicious device.

Passengers were asked to leave the terminal and all flights from the terminal were delayed.

Officials told CNN that the alert was raised over items found in a passenger's bag - but they were actually paperweights.

Officials are on alert because the United Nations General Assembly is meeting in New York this week.
