Suspected Bomb Grounds Air France Flight
An Air France flight has made an emergency landing in Kenya after a possible bomb was found in the plane's lavatory.
According to the Associated Press, the flight left Mauritius and was on its way to Paris' Charles de Gaulle airport.
However on Sunday, the CEO of Air France said that the device was a fake bomb made out of cardboard, paper and something like a kitchen timer.
Four passengers have been arrested.
