BERLIN — An Air Berlin flight from Namibia to Munich was delayed after police found a suspicious bag in the luggage hall of the airport in the southern African nation's capital, authorities said Thursday.

Germany sent federal police experts stationed in South Africa to help in the investigation amid heightened concerns of terrorist threats against Germany, though it appeared later that the bag may have been part of an airport security test.

The bag was found early Wednesday in Windhoek's airport near baggage that was to be loaded onto the Air Berlin flight to Munich, said Air Berlin spokeswoman Sabine Teller.

A scan showed batteries attached by wires to a fuse and a clock, Germany's Federal Criminal Police Office said.
