  • Published by Ozgur Tore

An airbus 380 that departed Los Angeles landed in Salt Lake City while another flight from Dulles outside Washington DC was diverted to Halifax in Nova Scotia.

In a brief statement Air France said both flights had been the “subjects of anonymous threats received after their respective take-offs.”

Before the jets were given the all-clear, the airline said that "authorities are carrying out complete inspections of the aircraft, the passengers and their luggage."

The FBI said later Tuesday that no evidence has been found to suggest the threats were credible.
