TAIPEI, Taiwan



Taiwan’s China Airlines says a passenger fretting over a flight delay falsely claimed he had explosives in his luggage.

The airline says the man, in his early 70s, made the claim at a boarding desk at Taoyuan International Airport, near Taiwan’s capital, Taipei, after Flight CI512 was delayed for an hour Friday.

It says airport security officials determined there was no bomb on board but detained the man pending investigation.

The plane later departed for Beijing with its 350 passengers.
