MIAMI (AP) - A 37-year-old naturalized U.S. citizen will make a first appearance in court a day after his bag ignited while being unloaded at Miami International Airport.

Orville Andrew Braham told investigators he had hid some 700 rounds of ammunition and a reloader in his suitcase to keep it away from his children. Braham was scheduled to appear before a federal judge Wednesday afternoon.

Braham said he forgot to remove the ammunition when he packed for the trip to Jamaica. He was on a flight from Boston to Miami to Jamaica when some of the ammunition ignited. No one was injured.
