Man arrested over Air France bomb scare

A man has been arrested after an Air France jet was forced to make an emergency landing in Kenya due to a bomb scare.

The flight from Mauritius to Paris was diverted after a suspicious package was found in the toilets.

The plane, which was carrying 459 passengers and 14 crew members, continued its journey to Paris after being given the all-clear.

A 58-year-old retired police officer was arrested when the aircraft arrived in Paris.
