Miami: A 37-year-old man is facing a federal
charge after bullet primers ignited in his bag as it was being
unloaded at Miami International Airport from a flight that had
just arrived.

FBI spokesman Mike Leverock says there is no connection
to terrorism. The man is a naturalized US citizen who was
traveling yesterday on an American Airlines flight from Boston
to Miami and on to Jamaica. His name was not immediately
released.

Leverock says several hundred bullet primers were
discovered inside the bag after some ignited. No one was
injured, although a few small shards struck the shoe of a
baggage handler.

The man was being held on a charge of traveling in
interstate commerce without a license to carry ammunition.
