MIAMI, Fla. – All passengers on board American Airlines flight 2325 at Miami International Airport were removed from the plane Tuesday after the Miami-Dade Police Department received a report of a possible bomb threat about 9:15 p.m.

Police said the plane was moved to an area where it was swept by the K-9 unit. It was given the all-clear shortly before 10 p.m.

An American Airlines representative said the LaGuardia Airport-bound flight had a curfew that it missed. The airline offered passengers the opportunity to fly into John F. Kennedy International Airport instead or to stay overnight in Miami to take the first flight out Wednesday morning.

All airport operations continued as normal as the bomb threat was investigated.
