BILL HEMMER, CNN ANCHOR: At this time, watching a developing story here in the city of Atlanta. Atlanta's Hartsfield International Airport, largely considered the busiest airport in the world, has been shut down due to a security breach.

Now we don't have much information, details a bit sketchy. But apparently, what they're saying according to local media reports here in Atlanta, that someone, some man, has breached security. How he did it, why he did it, unclear at this time. But there are no planes leaving Atlanta right now.

Just got word a short time ago that planes are allowed to land, but takeoffs right now have been frozen. A live picture -- you're seeing it from Atlanta. Again, details not clear right now, but security apparently breached by a man at Atlanta's Hartsfield International Airport. Right now, takeoffs have been frozen. We'll track from this town, let you know what we get more in a moment here.
