No bomb found on plane — police

A Kenyan police official says no explosives have been found yet in a suspicious device left on an Air France flight that caused the plane to be diverted to Mombasa, Kenya.

The police official, who is part of the investigation and who insisted on anonymity because he is not authorized to speak to the media, says during the flight to Paris a passenger noticed something in one of the plane’s lavatories that looked like “a stopwatch mounted on a box.”

The passenger reported the suspicious device to the cabin crew and pilots requested an emergency landing.

The police official says the box has been taken apart and no explosives have been found but the digital watch has not yet been analyzed.
