Oman Air flight lands in India after bomb scare

NEW DELHI (AP) — An Oman Air plane made an emergency landing in India on Saturday because of a bomb scare during the flight, an airport official said.

The plane landed without incident at the Mumbai airport, and the passengers disembarked safely.

The official said the flight was headed to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, from Muscat. The official was speaking on condition of anonymity as he was not authorized to speak to the media.

The pilot requested an emergency landing, and the aircraft was diverted to an isolated bay at the airport upon landing.

No other details were immediately available.

Princeton University Evacuates After Bomb Threat

 

An hours-long search for explosives on the Princeton University campus has turned up nothing so far.

Princeton officials say they expect the searches to continue for several more hours but hope to reopen the campus by the evening. No decision will be made until the searches are complete.

The Ivy League university evacuated nearly 7,000 people from its campus and off-campus buildings after receiving a phoned-in bomb threat at 9 a.m. Tuesday. Princeton says in a statement that it was one of a number of threats around the country Tuesday, although a school spokesman says he is unaware of anything linking them.

No classes are in session, though some summer programs are.
