Turkish plane from Nairobi forced to make emergency landing after bomb scare

The plane was carrying 107 passengers.

“Turkish Airlines flight 606 made an emergency landing after a passenger on board said he received an email saying there was a bomb on board,” civil aviation authority spokesman Abdelhafiz Abdelrahim told reporters.

The plane was cordoned off but nothing untoward was found after investigation by security officials.

Reports say a British passenger received an email of the imminent threat and showed the crew.

The passenger is allegedly under investigation.

Fortunately, all 107 passengers are reported safe and sound.
