CAIRO - Egyptian security has found nothing suspicious on board a passenger plane that was held up for searches at Cairo airport on Thursday afternoon following a bomb threat, security sources said.

The EgyptAir plane had been due to depart for Istanbul at 1355 (1155 GMT) but was halted after the threat was passed on to Egyptian authorities by a foreign embassy, the sources said.

The passengers were evacuated and the plane isolated while the search was conducted. Security sources said the checks had been completed and nothing suspicious had been found.
