British Airways plane evacuated at Paris airport over bomb scare, takes off four hours late
A London-bound British Airways flight was evacuated at Paris's Charles de Gaulle airport on Sunday due to a bomb scare, but was later cleared for take-off. An airport source said the threat was made about 10 minutes before flight BA303 was due to take off, prompting the evacuation. Bomb disposal experts and sniffer dogs swept the aircraft, while passengers had to pass back through security, the source said. The airport's operator Aeroports de Paris said an incident linked to security had grounded the plane.
