Air Panama plane evacuated in Costa Rica due to bomb threat


An Air Panama plane was evacuated in San Jose, Costa Rica Thursday due to a bomb threat.

According to reports from media in the neighboring country, the threat was made by one of the passengers aboard the flight, an 80-year-old of Spanish nationality.

"The passenger was apparently a little upset by the trip, and said that he had an explosive," authorities said.

The plane was checked by a canine unit and the passenger was taken into custody.

"It appears he was making a joke," said Carlos Hidalgo, a spokesman for the Ministry of Public Security.

The passenger was later released.
