KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - Bed bugs have been found in a sitting area at Kansas City International Airport.

The Kansas City Star reports that the discovery was made Thursday inside Terminal B. Airport spokesman Kathleen Hefner says the infestation was on an upholstered chair in an area near several restaurants.

Hefner says the mezzanine area of the terminal was closed temporarily to clean for the bugs. She says no food prep areas were contaminated.
