VIDEO -      RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Richmond International Airport has reopened its terminal following a threat that prompted an evacuation.
 
     The airport announced the terminal's opening in a posting on Twitter shortly after 9:45 a.m. Tuesday.
 
     Virginia State Police Sgt. Thomas Molnar says the airport received a threatening phone call shortly after 6 a.m. Tuesday.
 
     Canine units were brought in to sweep the terminal and the parking decks. The airport says nothing was found during the sweeps.
