There was a bomb scare an Air France flight Sunday. The plane was flying the Indian Ocean island Mauritius to Paris. A passenger found a strange-looking device made a kitchen timer, cardboard and paper in a toilet. They alerted staff and the pilot decided to make an emergency landing the Kenyan port city Mombasa, which was the nearest airport. Air France's CEO Frederic Gagey said the device was harmless and caused a "false alarm". He said that someone probably put it the toilet some point during the flight. Mr Gagey added: "All the information available to us at the moment indicates that the object was not capable creating an explosion or damaging a plane."

Some the passengers were put alternative flights to Paris. Five others are being questioned the police. A Kenyan police chief told the Reuters news agency that: "[Some people] are now airborne, but a few among them, who we were interrogating, have remained us, until ongoing investigations are done." The plane was carrying 459 passengers and 14 crew members. One those on board said the crew told them that the plane was being diverted because a technical problem. He said: "The plane just went down, slowly, slowly, slowly, so we just realised probably something was wrong." He added: "The crew Air France were just great, just wonderful. They kept everybody calm and really quiet."
