At the M. R. Štefánik Airport in Bratislava, a suspicious white powder caused alarm and the closure of the airport for several hours during the night from Sunday, September 2, to Monday, September 3. Passengers on the Ryanair flight from Bristol were forced to wait from 21:30 to 3:30, until an analysis showed that the powder was not anthrax. No flights were cancelled, the Sme daily wrote in its Tuesday issue.
