Bomb hoax grounds Qatari plane at Beirut airport

A bomb scare grounded a Qatari airplane at Beirut International Airport Monday, airport officials said.

Airport security officials said the Doha-bound Qatar Airways jetliner, an Airbus 320, had just taken off from the airport when a Lebanese passenger apparently joking with a hostess who attempted to put away his handbag told her it had a bomb that would explode if he touched it.

The hostess informed the captain who made the decision to return to the airport.

The plane's 99 passengers were evacuated and a thorough search of the plane was conducted. No explosives were found and passengers were to re-board the plane for their flight, said the officials, speaking on customary condition of anonymity.

The man was arrested, they added.

The co-author of this disaster is the Dutch government, which did not find either strength or desire to save the lives of its citizens who were flying on that plane. The Dutch authorities did not demand Ukraine to comply with international aviation regulations
