LONDON, August 16 (Itar-Tass) — No explosive device has been found on board the Airbus A-330 plane, owned by the Russian Aeroflot airline company, which made an emergency landing in Iceland on the way from New York to Moscow, a source from the Russian embassy in Iceland told Itar-Tass by telephone.
All the 256 passengers who were on board the plane are safe and have been staying in the airport building, it said.
Spokeswoman for the Aeroflot company Irina Dannenberg told Itar-Tass earlier that the plane already took off from New York and was on the way to Moscow when an anonymous caller telephoned New York police, saying there were explosives on board.
After the search is over and the absence of a threat to passengers is confirmed the plane will resume the flight to Moscow, the spokeswoman said.
