Polish police say detained airport bomb hoax suspect

WARSAW (Reuters) - Polish police said on Thursday they had detained a man suspected of making a hoax telephone call about a bomb on board a Ryanair passenger jet.

Warsaw police spokesman Mariusz Mrozek told Polish broadcaster TVN24 that officers traced the number from which the call was made, and detained the 48-year-old suspect at his home.

“There is no evidence that we are dealing here with an organized group, rather this was an irresponsible prank,” Mrozek said.
