Aircraft makes emergency landing in Bulgaria, no explosives found

  • A passenger plane flying from Poland to Egypt made an emergency landing in Bulgaria on Thursday after it was reported that a bomb was placed in the aircraft -- but no explosives were found on board after a thorough search of the aircraft, an official said. The plane, with 161 people onboard, took off from Warsaw, heading to the Egyptian coastal city of Hurghada, but it landed in the Belgian city of Burgas after a passenger alerted the crew to the possible existence of a bomb on board. Bulgarian police evacuated the passengers and searched the plane without finding anything suspicious, a spokesperson for the Bulgarian interior ministry said. (Source: IANS)
