A bomb threat forced the emergency landing of a passenger airplane in Bulgaria on Thursday.
The charter flight, carrying 161 passengers from Poland’s capital Warsaw to the Egyptian beach resort of Hurghada, landed at the airport in the Bulgarian city of Burgas after one of the passengers informed the crew about possible explosives on board, Reuters reported.
The passenger later confessed to police that he had consumed alcohol, and no explosives were found after evacuating everyone on board.
It was the third such incident this week, with two Air France flights to Paris from the U.S. diverted on Wednesday.
Tensions have been high across much of Europe since last Friday’s terror attacks in the French capital, which claimed 129 lives.
