Authorities say an Arizona man threatened to blow up the iconic liberty bell in Philadelphia on Saturday.

The 41 year old has been charged with several offenses including making a terrorist threat and a bomb threat.

Police say he made the threats as he entered the historic site.

Two black backpacks were found later.

The bomb squad determined that they were not explosive.

The Liberty Bell is an American Treasure.
