NEW YORK (Reuters) - Officials shut down the Delta Air Lines terminal at New York's LaGuardia Airport on Friday after a man ran through a security checkpoint, CNN television said. It said flights were not being allowed to take off from Terminal D, but were being allowed to land after the security breach. A witness said 600 to 700 people were evacuated. CNN said the man took off his shoes for the security check and ran off without them, setting off the alert.
