There was a bomb scare on an Air France plane. It was flying to Paris. A passenger found a strange clock. He told the pilot. He made an emergency landing in Kenya. The timer was harmless and could not explode or damage the plane. It was a "false alarm". Someone put it in the toilet during the flight.

Kenyan police are questioning five people. There were 459 passengers and 14 crew members on the plane. The crew told passengers the plane had a technical problem. Everyone knew something was wrong. A passenger said the plane went down slowly. He said the crew were great and they kept everybody calm.
