Two flights to Paris diverted by ‘bomb scare’


LOS ANGELES: Two Air France flights bound for Paris from the United States were diverted on Tuesday (Wednesday in Manila) and landed safely after the airline received anonymous bomb threats, the carrier said. Flight 65 from Los Angeles and Flight 55 from Washington were “subject to anonymous threats received after their respective takeoff,” the airline said in a statement. The incidents took place just days after last week’s terror attacks in Paris that left 129 people dead and sowed fear in the French capital and beyond. Air France said both planes landed safely and were undergoing safety checks.
