ATLANTA -- Airport spokesman Reese McCranie says an electrical switch forced a lockdown at Atlanta Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport Monday afternoon.

McCranie says the lockdown stopped passenger trains in the tunnels and triggered doors between terminals that stopped the movement of passengers. Access to security checkpoints were also blocked during the lockdown.

The lockdown lasted about 10 minutes or so, before crews restored access to the terminals at the world's busiest airport.
