Bomb scare forces Sydney-bound plane back to China
associated press
A Chinese plane bound for Australia was forced to make an emergency landing in southern China after a note was found on board warning of a bomb, an airline official said Tuesday. Authorities in the southern Chinese city of Guangzhou found no trace of a bomb and later allowed the plane to resume its overnight flight to Sydney, airline officials said. Some 20 minutes after the China Southern Airlines flight departed Wednesday evening from Guangzhou, a note was found in a lavatory warning that a bomb would explode, airline spokesman Jeff Ruffolo said. The pilot turned the plane around and authorities in Guangzhou searched the Airbus A330 for two hours, but found nothing.
