Two Detained In Air France Bomb Scare

Reports indicate that the police in Paris have detained two people who were on the Air France flight that was forced to make an emergency landing in Kenya when a fake bomb was found on board.

The detainees include a 58-year-old ex-policeman from the Indian Ocean island of Reunion and his wife who is being questioned as a witness.

Air France says the fake bomb was made of cardboard and a kitchen timer and posed no danger.

The Boeing 777 was on its way from Mauritius to Paris when the suspicious object was found in a plane toilet and the decision was made to make an emergency landing. The plane was then evacuated at Mombasa airport.

Police reportedly held the couple, who have not been named, on their return to France.

Officials say 459 passengers and 14 crew members were on board the Boeing 777 when a contraption was found behind a bathroom mirror.
