Bomb hoax forces Egypt Air plane to land in Uzbekistan

CAIRO: An Egypt Air flight from Cairo to Beijing made an emergency landing in Uzbekistan on Wednesday after a bomb threat that turned out to be a hoax, the airline said.

Uzbek authorities checked the Airbus A330 and found no explosives on board, Egypt Air chairman Safwat Musallam told AFP. “The authorities there cleared the plane for departure after they searched the plane and found no threats,” he said.
