TAIPEI, Taiwan — A spokesman for Taiwan's China Airlines said on Saturday that a flight from the Taiwanese capital of Taipei to the Chinese city of Shanghai was diverted after a passenger told cabin crew his luggage contained explosives.

Bruce Chen said the plane landed safely in the Chinese city of Hangzhou and Chinese authorities took the passenger away for questioning.

Chen says the passenger was surnamed Lin and that he was traveling on a US passport.
