An Aeroflot plane headed to Moscow from JFK Airport was diverted to Iceland over a bomb threat today. The plane, an Airbus 330 carrying 256 people, is at Keflavik International Airport where "baggage and passengers were being inspected as part of the search for explosives."
Aeroflot spokeswoman Irina Dannenberg said that an anonymous caller contacted the NYPD, "There was an anonymous call saying that there was an explosive device on the plane, which was already in the air. The pilot took the decision to land the plane and it landed safely. A search is being conducted."
And Iris Marelsdottir of Iceland's Civil Protection Agency told the AP that all passengers were fine and under the care of the Red Cross in Reykjavik, "The search for explosives is under way in accordance with aviation security procedures and plans. They haven't found any explosives, and I don't know long the search will go on."
