A Turkish Airlines plane flying from New York to Istanbul was diverted to Canada on Sunday because of a bomb threat. The plane, with 256 passengers and crew, landed safely at Halifax Stanfield International Airport.
Authorities received the bomb threat late Saturday at 22:50 (0250 GMT) after the plane had departed New York's John F. Kennedy International Airport.
The Royal Canadian Mounted Police is looking to establish the origin of the threat and identify the person or persons responsible," it said on Twitter.
No explosives were found aboard the Turkish Airlines plane which later took off for Istanbul.
The diversion came several days after two Paris-bound Air France planes departing from the U.S. were diverted due to anonymous bomb threats.
Flight 55, from Dulles Airport outside Washington, D.C., and Flight 65, from Los Angeles, made emergency landings in Halifax and in the western U.S. city of Salt Lake City, respectively, on Tuesday.
