Police have issued an all-clear have searching what was initially deemed a suspicious package at Kennedy Airport.

The item mistaken for a possible grenade turned out to be a paperweight, a law enforcement official said.

Terminal 4 was evacuated as police searched the package. The measure was taken out of an abundance of caution, officials said.

The passenger had flown in from Tel Aviv through Moscow with the paperweight in his carry-on bag. The item was discovered by a customs agent at Kennedy Airport.
