Thai police arrest German after bomb threat to flight to Bangkok

Thai police on Friday arrested a German man accused of making a bomb threat on a Nok Airlines plane bound for Bangkok, the airline said.

The man, who was not named, was arrested after he claimed he was carrying an explosive device in his carry-on baggage on the plane from Loei province in the northeast to Bangkok.

Police have not confirmed whether the bomb threat was fake or real.

 Budget carrier Nok Air, a subsidiary of Thai Airways, said Flight DD 9705 carrying 83 passengers and five crew took off as scheduled after the man was arrested.
