Man arrested at Denver airport after bomb threat

  • 0

DENVER - Officials at the Denver airport say a passenger is in custody after claiming to have explosives on a Northwest Airlines plane.

Airport spokesman Chuck Cannon says no explosives were found Saturday after the plane was towed away from the terminal and the man arrested.

Cannon says the plane was leaving the gate when the man said he had explosives in his luggage. Northwest spokeswoman Michelle Aguayo Shannon says about 140 people were on the Minneapolis-bound flight.

Passengers were re-screened before continuing on their way.

The situation comes a day after a false bomb threat forced nearly 100 passengers off a Northwest jet waiting for takeoff in Detroit.
