Man held after plane bomb threat


Swedish police have detained a man for questioning after a bomb threat forced a passenger jet to make an emergency landing in Stockholm.

The aircraft, a Boeing jet, has been evacuated. Police are searching the plane’s baggage but say they’ve found no explosives on the man or on board the plane.

The Pakistan International Airlines jet had more than 270 passengers on board and was flying from Canada to Karachi in Pakistan.

It was diverted after a woman phoned Canadian police saying a male passenger was carrying explosives.
