(AP) Part of Amsterdam's Schiphol Airport has been evacuated after workers unearthed a suspected World War II bomb near its main terminal building.


Airport spokeswoman Karin Heldeweg says that the airport's Pier C has been shut down for arriving and departing flights while military bomb disposal experts check the suspected explosive and decide what to do with it.


The airport says the pier's closure could lead to delays and cancellations of flights.


The suspected bomb was uncovered early Wednesday by workers digging near the pier, which houses many of Schiphol's departure and arrival gates.


Schiphol, just outside Amsterdam, is one of Europe's busiest aviation hubs.
