Cargo plane from Greece searched in Bologna

Cargo plane from Greece searched in Bologna

Police say authorities at Bologna's airport are searching for a suspicious package believed addressed to Premier Silvio Berlusconi and flown aboard a cargo plane from Greece.
Police spokeswoman Donatella Dosi told The AP in Rome early Wednesday the pilot of the TNT plane asked to make an unscheduled landing in Bologna on the Paris-bound flight after his company told them a suspicious package was "probably" on board.
Bologna's airport was closed while the plane was searched for hours after it landed late Tuesday night.
The ANSA news agency says Greek officials checking a list realized a package addressed to Berlusconi was probably among the cargo.
Suspected Greek terrorists have unleashed a two-day wave of mail bomb attacks in Athens and abroad.
