Flights at Stuttgart Airport were briefly suspended today as two passengers aboard a plane were arrested for allegedly planning a bomb attack.
According to The Sun UK, the incident occurred when there was an argument on board between a group of passengers.
A police spokesperson said: “During the routine departure check-out, a passenger told us that another passenger had threatened a bombing operation on the aircraft.
“In view of the global political situation and the way in which the passenger met us, we had to take the threat seriously.”
All airport operations were briefly suspended while a search for explosives took place.
However, nothing was found and the plane – destined for Varna, Bulgaria – later departed without any further hiccups. Cops said they would investigate the authenticity of the man’s bomb claim.
