Turkish police detains one passenger over plane bomb threat

Turkish police detained a passenger of a Sunexpress plane which made an emergency landing in northern Greece after a crew member found a bomb warning in the toilet while travelling from Germany to Turkey.

A piece of paper with a bomb warning in the toilet forced the Sunexpress plane, bound for Izmir from Stuttgart, to land in Thessaloniki on Friday. The plane took off from Thessaloniki with 62 passengers on board after Greek police searched the plane and did not find any explosives, and it arrived in Izmir late Friday.

Greek police found a pencil, in a passenger's bag, with the same color of the bomb warning on the paper. Greek police detained the man but later he was put on the plane.

Turkish police detained the same man as the plane landed in Izmir, officials said. Police are questioning the unidentified man, officials added.
