THESSALONIKI, Greece (AP) - An airplane flying from Germany to
Turkey was diverted to a Greek airport after a threatening message was found written in one of its bathrooms, but a search of the plane found nothing suspicious.
The Turkish airliner, carrying 62 passengers and six crew members, was evacuated when it touched down in Thessaloniki, northern Greece.
Police said the English-language graffiti found in the bathroom included the words "will die today."
Police who searched the plane said they found nothing suspicious, and no one has been arrested.
The Sun Express plane was traveling from Stuttgart, Germany, to
Izmir, Turkey, when it was diverted. Later, the plane completed its
flight to Izmir, Turkey's state-run Anatolia news agency reported.
