Just heard something similar on CNN. They said that they are wanting FBI officials to interview a passenger on board and they showed the aircraft sitting on the ramp.

CNN just updated the story to say that officials received a tip from someone and they think there is a possibility that radioactive materials may be onboard.

Now they are saying it was the Russian officials who tipped off the FBI, but apparently everything is ok and the plane has been cleared to proceed to the gate.

I was watching NY1 (the local news channel) and I heard absolutely NOTHING about radiological materials on board the plane. Thank God!

They suspended all traffic on Runway 31R and everything has been proceeded to used Runways 31L and 4RL.

My guess is that Russians discovered that some mafia type (they Russian mob is HUGE over here) was heading over the NY and wanted to get him back. I think they have to worry about that situation in Moscow with the theater! Now that's scary!
