A Lufthansa flight from Frankfurt to Israel was forced to make an unscheduled stop in Athens on Tuesday after a suspicious bottle was discovered on board the plane.

The bottle did not belong to any of the passengers, and upon the discovery the captain decided to land in Greece so that the bottle could be handed to authorities for investigation.

The flight then continued to its final destination of Tel Aviv's Ben Gurion airport.
