Plane lands in Turkey after bomb threat, passenger wants to land in Sochi


A Pegasus Airlines plane landed at an Istanbul airport Friday after a passenger “said that there was a bomb on board” and wanted the plane to land in Sochi, Russia, the site of the Winter Olympics, said officials with Turkey’s Transportation Ministry. “While the plane was in the air, one of the passengers said that there was a bomb on board and asked the plane to not land in Sabiha Gokcen (in Turkey) but rather to land in Sochi,” Transportation Ministry official Habip Soluk said Friday on CNNTurk. The passenger said the bomb was in the baggage hold, a Transportation Ministry official said. Official opening ceremonies for the Olympic Games began Friday in Sochi amid intense security against potential terror attacks. Cihan News Agency of Turkey said the alleged hijacker was apparently being detained, as it published a photograph from inside the plane of a man standing in a numbered-11 sports jersey with empty seats around him and two people in uniform. Turkish officials couldn’t be immediately reached to confirm the photograph. Officials had no immediate details on why the alleged hijacker wanted to divert the plane to Sochi.
