UPDATE: 8:10 p.m. EDT -- Bomb squad officials searched a plane at Miami International Airport Tuesday after "suspicious activity" was reported on an American Airlines flight that arrived from Paris. American Airlines Flight 63 left Charles de Gaulle Airport and safely arrived in Miami shortly after 3:30 p.m.

But when the plane landed, officials were called to investigate after no one would initially claim a cell phone found on the plane. The person who eventually claimed the phone will not face charges, the FBI said. The all clear was given by Miami-Dade police at 6:30 p.m.
