Barca Bomb Threat

BARCELONA, Spain -- The plane carrying the Barcelona soccer team to Rotterdam for Wednesday's European Cup Winners' Cup final was delayed by more than four hours by a bomb scare.


Passengers were ordered off the 747 charter jet Monday and told to identify their luggage while the plane was checked by security forces. No bomb was found.


The plane was carrying 355 passengers, including players, club officials, media and fans to the game against Paris Saint Germain.
