upon his return to Kaohsiung from Tianjin on Friday.

The man, identified only by his surname Su, posted a notice on the Facebook account of a Taiwan-Japan exchange forum saying that all personnel of the Kaohsiung International Airport should pay attention.

The notice, which tried to give the impression it was written by a Japanese citizen because it bore a Japanese name, said that he would bring a bomb in to blow up the airport.

“The bodies of the people around the airport will also be blown to pieces. I’m a third grader in primary school,” the posted notice said.

Police found that Su was the person who had allegedly posted the bomb threat, two hours after he put the notice on the Facebook account. Officers visited his home at Fengshan District in Kaohsiung and realized he had gone to Tianjin on a tour with his mother.     [FULL  STORY]
