STOCKHOLM, 3rd March, 2017 (WAM) -- A passenger plane carrying 300 people heading to Thailand was evacuated at Stockholm's Arlanda airport after it received a bomb threat.

"Our command centre received information that this specific flight was threatened. The threat came on the phone, but not to us, that's all I can say," police spokesperson told the TT news agency, adding that police were not immediately able to dismiss it as an empty threat.

The police bomb technicians had been sent to examine the plane directed to another spot of the airport earlier in the day on Friday.
