A suspicious package caused a scare at an airport in Taipei Saturday.
A Cathay Pacific flight from Hong Kong to Taipei, Taiwan, completed what appeared to be an uneventful flight with a safe landing in Taipei.
While unloading the aircraft a ground worker discovered a luggage container with a hand written label in Chinese indicating “Explosives! Handle with care!” and alerted security forces resulting in a massive deployment of police and firefighting forces including the bomb squad.
The aircraft was moved away from the terminal to the remote stand 605. The bomb squad subsequently examined the container and found no trace of explosives. [FULL STORY]
