Breaking: Bomb on board? Update: False alarm

Just saw on FNC–a British passenger jet has landed in Italy, with a suspected bomb on board. Could be nothing, could be something. We’ll keep you posted.

Update: The plane was en route from Gatwick airport in the UK to Egypt. It made an emergency stop in Italy and has apparently landed safely. No word yet on the suspected bomb.

More detail here, including the fact that an Italian F-16 escorted the plane to the ground.

Update: It all started with a note on a sick-bag.
