Bomb Scare on Pakistan-Bound Plane Just a Scare, Thankfully


Earlier today, a plane traveling from Canada to Pakistan emergency-landed in Sweden and a man was brought into custody, after a Canadian woman reportedly called aviation authorities and said the man was carrying explosives. False alarm! The suspect, a man in his late 20s, said he “doesn’t understand anything and that he has no idea what this is all about.” Swedish authorities explained: “The on-call prosecutor has decided not to arrest the man who has been held suspected of bringing explosives onto an airplane. The suspicions against this man are not strong enough to formally arrest him and he is therefore free to leave Sweden.” Everyone just go back to your Franzen novel and Us magazine now, we’re heading to Pakistan after all.
