There was some sort of security breach here at the Frankfurt Airport. We just went through a mass evacuation orchestrated by armed officers and airport security. No flights are boarding or leaving. No one knows what’s going on. They’re just telling everyone to go outside. pic.twitter.com/SNfQzoZ1Py
