Airport authorities have evacuated an area around a cargo container and several gates in a concourse at Dulles International Airport after a suspicious item was found, local media reported Saturday.

Two outbound flights were delayed because the aircraft were within the perimeter, according to the report.

The suspicious item was found at about 4:30 p.m. local time, said Rob Yingling, spokesman of Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority, adding that the explosive ordinance disposal team from Virginia state was on the scene, Xinhua reported.

However, no further details about the investigation were released.
