Turkish plane makes emergency landing after bomb threat
A Turkish passenger plane travelling from Germany to Turkey made an emergency landing on Friday in the northern Greek port city of Thessaloniki following a bomb threat, dpa reported.
The airline, SunExpress, received an anonymous call warning of the bomb shortly after the plane carrying 69 people left the German city of Stuttgart and headed to the Turkish port city of Izmir.
The threat was made two hours into the flight and the plane landed at 1558 GMT.
The pilot made an emergency landing in Thessaloniki, and the passengers were immediately evacuated.
All passengers and crew were safe and bomb officials were searching the aircraft before allowing it to resume its journey.
Officials said the incident was most likely a hoax.
