Bomb threat forces plane from Berlin to Egypt to make emergency landing

A German passenger plane flying to the Egyptian Red Sea resort of Hurghada landed in Budapest on Monday after a bomb scare but no explosives were found, Hungarian police said.
German airline Condor said that the Airbus A321 from Berlin with 140 passengers and crew on board diverted to Budapest after an “unspecific warning given by telephone”.

Hungarian police said it was a bomb scare but that after the plane landed and a thorough check was carried out, no explosives or bomb-making equipment were found, according to state news agency MTI.

Security services are on high alert for planes to and from Egypt after the downing of a Russian airliner returning from Sharm el-Sheikh on October 31 with 224 people on board.
