PORTLAND, OR (KPTV/AP) -

Two missiles found on a flight from Lebanon to Serbia were not headed to Portland, the FBI said Monday.

According to earlier reports, the final destination for the flight carrying the AGM-114 Hellfire missiles was Portland.

A spokeswoman for the FBI in Portland said those reports were incorrect and referred further questions to the U.S. Department of State.

The missiles were discovered by a sniffer dog during a stop at Belgrade's airport Saturday.

The Lebanese army said the missiles were used for training and did not contain any explosives. The army said the missiles were being sent to the American company that produced them.
