Bomb Threat on Plane




MOSCOW -- A Russian airliner made an emergency landing Tuesday after the crew received a bomb threat, an official said.


The Tu-154, with 10 crew members and 123 passengers aboard, was flying from the northern city of Norilsk to Moscow when the captain was told that a bomb had been planted on the plane, said Marina Ryklina, an Emergency Situations Ministry spokeswoman.


The plane made an emergency landing in Nizhnevartovsk, a city in Western Siberia, and everyone on board was safely taken off.
