FBI says no bomb found on Southwest plane that was diverted to Phoenix after phone threat

Authorities say no explosives were found on a Southwest Airlines plane that was diverted to Phoenix with 143 passengers on board.

The FBI said Monday that an afternoon flight from Los Angeles to Texas landed in Phoenix after a "telephonic bomb threat" was received.

Laura Eimiller of the FBI's Los Angeles field office says Flight 2675 left Los Angeles International Airport at 2:12 p.m. and was heading to Austin before the threat was received by telephone.

The plane landed safely at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport at about 3 p.m.

FBI agent Manuel Johnson says in a statement that all passengers were interviewed by Monday evening. He says investigators were making all efforts to identify the caller who made the bomb threat.
