US police in Miami have carried out a controlled explosion in the second bomb scare in as many days at the port.

The package tested positive for military-grade plastic explosives as it was being loaded onto a cruise ship.

But officers later determined it held harmless sprinkler parts that contained a substance that "closely resembles" explosives, police said.

On Sunday there was a brief terrorism scare at Miami port, but it too turned out to be a false alarm.
