MIAMI (AP) - Miami International Airport spokesman Greg Chin says Miami-Dade Police are investigating "something suspicious" on an American Airlines flight from Sao Paolo, Brazil.

Miami-Dade Police confirmed a bomb squad had been sent to the plane. No further details were immediately available.

The plane, Flight 930, arrived at 8:30 a.m. Monday.

Chin says the flight's passengers have deplaned and are going through customs. He says the gate where the plane arrived and two adjacent gates have been closed off, but the terminal remains open.

A message left for an American Airlines spokesman was not immediately returned.
