No bomb on latest threat­ened Cana­dian plane

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - CANADA -

SASKA­TOON — Po­lice in Saska­toon say there was no bomb on the latest Cana­dian plane that was the tar­get of a threat. An ex­plo­sives team has com­pleted its search of the jet and de­ter­mined that there was no ex­plo­sive de­vice on board. The plane was trav­el­ling from Toronto to Saska­toon on Tues­day evening and landed safely. The 113 pas­sen­gers and five crew mem­bers were forced to dis­em­bark on the tar­mac. Po­lice say the jet is now back in the care of WestJet. It’s the fourth time in a week that a Cana­dian pas­sen­ger jet has had to make an emer­gency land­ing be­cause of a threat. Po­lice say the in­ves­ti­ga­tion is con­tin­u­ing and there have been no ar­rests.
