Man detained at Moscow airport after making false bomb threat - authorities

MOSCOW, June 29 (Reuters) - A man was detained at Moscow’s Domodedovo airport on Friday after falsely stating he was carrying an explosive device, the airport said in a statement.

The airport said that the man made the claim when passing through a security check. It said no threat had been found after searching the individual and that the airport was functioning as normal.

A Reuters witness at the scene saw a man being led away by security guards in handcuffs. (Reporting by Gleb Stolyarov, writing by Tom Balmforth Editing by Andrew Osborn)
