Explosives found on Italian airliner

Explosives were found on an Italian airliner due to fly from the coastal town of Ancona to Rome yesterday, police said.

Details about the amount or type of explosive have not been released, but an airport police officer said “there was enough to bring the plane down, enough to blow off its tail”.

No arrests were made in the hours after the discovery. Full Story
