STOCKHOLM  — Swedish police evacuated 273 people from a Pakistan International Airlines jet diverted to Stockholm due to a bomb alert Saturday and briefly detained a passenger on suspicion of preparing aircraft sabotage, officials said.

However, no explosives were found on the man, who was released after questioning by police, or on the Boeing 777. All passengers — except the suspect — were allowed back on the plane nine hours later.

It took off for Manchester, England, from where the passengers would continue their journey to Karachi, Pakistan, said Jan Lindqvist, a spokesman for airport operator Swedavia.

The Royal Canadian Mounted Police said it was investigating whether the incident was a "terrorism hoax."
