A 63-year-old man attacked TSA agents at Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport with a machete and wasp spray on Friday night.

The State Bond Commission has kicked off the start of funding a new airport terminal in New Orleans.
The New Orleans Advocate reports it approved $650 million in borrowing to pay for a 650,000-square-foot, three-story terminal. It will be built on property now used by Louis Armstrong International Airport — but closer to Interstate 10.
Airport Aviation Director Iftikhar Ahmad says plans to revamp the facility have been discussed since 1974.
It opened in 1946, but the way it evolved has proven troublesome.
