STOCKHOLM — Swedish police reported Saturday that they have detained a man on a Pakistan International Airlines plane that made an emergency landing in Stockholm after Canadian authorities received a tip that a passenger was carrying explosives.

Police spokesman Kjell Lindgren said the man, described as a Canadian citizen of Pakistani origin, was detained as he was evacuated from the Boeing 777 jet along with other passengers at Stockholm's Arlanda airport. It was not immediately clear if he was carrying any explosives.

Officials say there were 273 people on board the plane, which was bound from Toronto to Karachi when the pilot asked to land in Stockholm.
