What happened to the Air France flight?
Earlier, the French government said in a statement that passengers on a flight to Paris had been evacuated on suspicion of possessing a bomb device.
According to the report, the plane landed “accidentally” at 4:01 pm local (10:01 am ET) from the Sடியdian capital, N’Jamena, at Paris’ Rosie-Charles de Gaulle airport and was “isolated.”
In addition, Air France confirmed that the AF865 was “taken away by a French Air Force fighter jet” as a result of an “anonymous threat”.
