Passenger jet was forced to land in Iceland

A passenger jet flying from New York's John F. Kennedy Airport to Moscow was diverted to Iceland because a caller told a law enforcement agency in New York that there were explosives on board the plane.

A total of 256 people were on board the Russian Aeroflot plane when an anonymous caller told authorities that there were five suitcases on the flight containing explosives, each set to detonate when the plane landed in Moscow, the BBC reported.
Authorities currently say they have found no evidence of any bomb on board.
