Bomb threat at JFK



Two aircraft were searched at John F Kennedy airport in New York following a bomb threat on Monday.



 


Officials received an annoymous telephone call claiming that a hijacker and explosives were onboard an American Airlines flight arriving from San Francisco and a Finnair flight arriving from Helsinki, Finland.



 


Both flights were taken to a secured location on the tarmac where they were searched



 


The FBI said nothing suspicious was found.



 


Last week, a US Airways flight was returned to its place of origin in Philadelphia after a similar anonymous phone call said a passenger was carrying liquid explosives.



 


The call turned out to be from an ex-girlfriend's current boyfriend, Kenneth W. Smith Jr, 26, who was charged for the hoax and now faces up to 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine.
