Turkish Airlines says plane lands safely in Istanbul after bomb threat

ISTANBUL (Reuters) - A Turkish Airlines plane landed safely in Istanbul after being recalled due to a bomb threat while bound for Basel, a spokeswoman said, the latest in a series of such incidents that have forced the carrier to divert or recall flights.

The private Dogan news agency said bomb disposal experts had begun searching the plane, a Boeing 738, in which a note had been found which said “there is a bomb”.
