Aeroflot Greek flight turns back after bomb warning

An Aeroflot flight from Athens to Moscow turned back after an anonymous caller told Athens airport staff it had a bomb on board, a Greek civil aviation official said on Monday.

"An unknown man called and said there was a bomb on the Aeroflot plane headed from Athens to Moscow," the official told Reuters.

"We told the pilot to return to Athens for the appropriate checks. The plane was near the border with Turkey at the time."
